Hi Chris,

Aliases will always show in the mailbox as the primary mailbox name. Thus, if someone sends email to Support it will show as being sent to Chris. If you want email sent to Support to arrive in Chris' inbox but show/display as being sent to Support, then you need to remove the Support alias under Chris and make Support a Distribution Group with Chris as the Member. The additional benefit is that if you want to send email from Support, as a DG, you can by simply do so by adding yourself to the Send As permission. That way outside users will never know Chris is operating the Support mailbox. However, Chris will receive and be able to send as Support!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

There is a way if you are using Outlook.

You need to switch View to PREVIEW
then go to  Change View / Manage Views
Select Preview from table and hit Modify

Then select COLUMNS

From Right remove what you don;t want to see and from Left add column "To"

@Chris Bowden: You can easily do all this in the GUI. Do you actually want to do it in PowerShell?

@Tom Cieslik: In Outlook, mailbox aliases will not show as the alias name but rather the mailbox name, which is not what the OP is looking for unless I am misunderstanding the question. What you are suggesting will only show the To column.
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
Not really

I have 3 aliases and if I change view and select TO column to show up, then I can see emails coming to all my email addresses
Blue Street TechLast KnightCommented:
I have multiple aliases and I tried it your way and it yields exactly what I am saying...alias do NOT show up but rather the default mailbox address does always BY DESIGN. I'm running EXCH2016/Outlook 2016. What are you running? It definitively does NOT work this way in Exchange 2003+. If you have a mailbox with multiple aliases and someone sends to one of the alias addresses the alias does not display on the To field but rather the Primary mailbox address does.
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
In Outlook 2013 is working

You can see 2 aliases Tom Cieslik and IT, bot are mine

Maybe in new Outlook Microsoft have changed they way Outlook is acting. I can;t confirm since I;m not using Outlook 2016
Blue Street TechLast KnightCommented:
And you are using Exchange? This is an Exchange server behavior not an Outlook one.
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
Exchange 2013

You have them setup as DGs then! It may serve you better in the future to investigate your own environment. :)
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
There is another field but it require to change filter to All Mail Fields, then select E-Mail Account and Add it to View

Chris BowdenAuthor Commented:
i have changed the view i still have the same issue
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
Yes, I can confirm that is NOT possible.
Sorry I got confused. Outlook will always show you primary email address.
I got IT showing because this is my distribution group I've created, so this is workaround for you.
Remove all additional email addresses from your email field in Exchange. Create few distribution group with address your want to get email to (make sure you Exchange is accepting email to this address) and assign yourself to this groups.

This will give you list you're looking for in Outlook.

Sorry for misleading.
