In SBS 2011 using Exchange 2010, I have two email addresses set in POP3 to go to one of the two email addresses, The first email address is the users actual email address, "user@xxx.com." The second email is an "info@xxxx.com" email. Other than looking at each header of each individual email, is there a way for the user to tell which address an email has been sent to?

Thank you!

I believe the e-mail header will contain the original recipient information.  How (or if) you view the header depends on the reader you're using.

The headers are the only method of determining the To: address.

If the user is using Outlook, you can create rules to look for the addresses in the header, and place the e-mail in a separate folder depending on the To: address.

Thank you for the very quick answer and the suggestion. I will create a rule to use separate folders.
