.com and .org in Office 365, how to differintiate within Outlook?


We have a .org set as our primary email domain within Office 365 but also authenticated our .com in 365. Both emails are flowing directly to our .org account setup as Exchange but I need to be able to differentiate the .org vs the .com emails within Outlook 2010-2013. Any ideas?

It depends which is primary SMTP address of user, if you have configured primary SMTP as .com so you can configure Outlook with .com e-mail address.

if I am understanding your question correctly so you need to filter mails those are coming to users at .org and .com address. So in this case create an outlook rules if mails is coming on .com address then move it to another folder in Inbox and same with .org.

Could you elaborate on your question more? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you are saying that your users have both .org and .com email addresses in exchange but only the .org account is setup in outlook. Email from both addresses flows into the .org account and you want to be able to easily differentiate which account the emails are coming from.

If this is the case I agree with the previous comment that the easiest way to do this would be to create 2 folders under the inbox and use outlook rules to direct email into each one based on the address the email is sent to.

Another way to do it would be to create two separate mailboxes, one for each address, and have mail flow to them separately. Then put both inboxes under favorites so they are easily accessible.

If I have understood the short question, if you want to have the .com and .org email address spilt out then I believe the only way to achieve that is two completely separate mailboxes for each user.

Each Office 365 user can only have one primary SMTP (well, not just Office 365 - that's Exchange). They can then have any number of secondary email addresses that if email is sent there, it  will arrive in their one mailbox. But replying will always come from the primary smtp.

If you expand then we can too :-)

I basically need to split the inbox or sub inbox to filter the .com "to" messages. Im not sure on the filter settings in 2013.
Blake LongEngineerCommented:
For that you would just create a rule in outlook.
