Outlook/Exchange alias for an email account not showing up yet?
Posted on 2012-03-30
We have a general computer in our office for part time people so it has a general user login and profile for everyone to use, like "part time" for example. Right now when they send and recieve emails from that computer they are to and from " Part Time". They now have one single part time person using this pc and don't want to change the "part time" profile or login...... But.... when sending and receiving from Outlook now they would like it to say to and from "bob".
We added an alias on the account for "part time" called Bob. It now shows up in the EMC under "part times" email addresses.....Bob@.....com but when we send email to and Bob replies...the email address still shows "part time".
Checking the global address list it still says Part Time.....it's not updating somewhere or I'm missing something.
I do know that if I send to Bob@.....com and to PartTime@.....com both emails show up in their mailbox. But the replies from both still say PartTime@.....com.
I have done this many times on and SBS 2003 box without issues, a little delay in the updating but it shows up correctly and works.
We have SBS2010 and exchange 2007 now ....... what am i missing here??
