Hi,
I've to create an alias for a mailbox on Exchange 2007.
My problem is that, if the alias is "alias@domain.com" and the real address is "user@domain.com", when a message join the mailbox, "To:" appears "user@domain.com".

I need to show, instead, "alias@domain.com" so I can create filter client-side.
How can I do this?
Thankyou

Alias@Domain.com would only appear if its the Primary Email :)

At present, user@domain.com is set as "set as primary", and is ok.
Did you mean something different?

Yes whatever you want to show at top of Outlook or in email to sender that has to be set as Primary

Hi Rancy,
I think I did not explain the problem clearly.
The problem is: when I wrote an email for "alias@domain.com" from external address (for example: Gmail), message arrives correctly, but I see that recipient is "user@domain.com", so I'm not able to distinguish mail sent to "alias@domain.com" from those sent to "user@domain.com", so I can't create a rule on my client to filter them.
Thankyou

Ohk perfecto !! So only one solution i create Subfolders to INBOX and then create a rule that will check the header of the email and determine if the email is sent to "user@domain.com" or "alias@domain.com" or whatever emailaddresses that user has

The header method isn't 100% reliable. If the email is BCC for example then it wouldn't work.
The method I prefer to use is a group. Add the alias address to the group then have the user as the only member of the group. You can then filter the emails to the required folder simply by querying for email sent to the group. Hide the group from the GAL once setup.

Simon.
