Exchange user with two mail addresses - using rule to separate mail

Greetings,

I have an exchange user that has an e-mail address firstname@domainname.com and also firstinitiallastname@domainname.com. This is configured in the e-mail address tab in exchange management console > recipient configuration > mailbox > user properties.

Anyway, I'm trying to user a rule in outlook to put mail to firstinitiallastname@domainname.com into a certain folder.  I tried using a rule that looks for "specific words in the recipient address".  When I configured it Outlook told me it would be a client only rule.  However the rule failed to work properly.  Mail was not moved into the folder.

I can see that in the headers of the mail message it shows firstinitiallastname@domainname.com.

Can anyone tell me how this is to be accomplished properly?

Thanks very much in advance.

I guess it was easier than i thought. I did it by looking for specific words in the message header.
