By default when I setup an alias for my exchange email like info@domain.com
it comes into my email client (not outlook) as if it was sent to my primary email address.
how can I tell what alias the email was sent to? I don't want it to change it as if it was sent to the primary email. I need to know it was sent to info@domain.com how can I change this?

TIA

You will need to examine the email headers to see which address the email was sent to and you can setup rules to do this for you and then direct the mail to a specific folder so that you don't have to check each and every email that arrives, you simply look in the relevant folder which is specific to the email account that the message was sent to.

okay I setup alias' in my @primaryemail.domain.com
Alias like info@domain.com support@domain.com and so on
when someone sends me an email to one of these alias' I can't tell which alias it is sent to.
Because in my email client (not outlook) it shows as it was sent to my primary email account name. All I want to be able to do is see which email alias the sender sent to. I know I can check the headers, but come on I want to see it in the inbox.

You can't because all you will see is the display name on the account that the alias belongs to.

Using rules on the headers is the only way to determine (easily), which address the message was sent to.

You can create two mailboxes with the two different primary smtp addresses
add both mailboxes in your email client profile
You will be having two mailboxes GUI interface in one profile, easily you can see in which mailbox mails are coming.. thanks ms
