Outlook Web Access rule based on recipient email address

I have an Exchange 2010 mailbox set up (jobs@mydomain.net) and I'm looking to organize applications sent to that email address by assigning a different email address (job_123@mydomain.net) and using an inbox rule to direct those applications into subfolders based on which email address the application is sent to.

The problem is that it appears Exchange resolves the recipient before it reaches Outlook so Outlook (or OWA, more accurately) only sees it as jobs@mydomain.net, regardless of the actual address used.

Any thoughts on what changes I can make to get this to work?  Is there a better alternative?

I think I understand but let me clarify.  When you say assigning a different email address did you mean by using an alias and you want the inbox rule to sort based on the email address alias?

Well, technically "jobs" is the alias of the mailbox, isn't it?

The default email address is automatically created as jobs@mydomain.net. I go in to Exchange and add another SMTP address (such as job_123@mydomain.net).
No, but I understand now.

"I have an Exchange 2010 mailbox set up (jobs@mydomain.net)" so this will be the mailbox and the default email address.

The alias the other SMTP address which is job_123@mydomain.net because this is not an actual mailbox and you want the rule to sort based on this.

How about, set the rule with the smtp address in the message header then you can use the import/export rules function to move the email to another mailbox when the role changes.
