Conditional formatting for secondary email address

Is there a way to apply conditional formatting in Outlook when the targeted email address is the non-default email address for the mailbox.

e.g.  
default address is someone@contoso.com
secondary address is something@contoso.com

So I would like to highlight the email in another color if it was sent to something@contoso.com

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thanks for the link reference, but I tried all that.  The issue is my mailbox has two addresses associated with it JoeBlow@contoso.com as the default reply address.  This is the mail attribute in AD.  He also has the address contact@contoso.com and if someone emails contact@contoso.com it will be sent to joeblow's mailbox as if it was sent to joeblow@contoso.com  

Do you know if there is a way to see the header to address the conditional formatting?

The above reference by @itguy565 is a good way for conditional formatting in outlook, but if a user has an primary (default) email address and a proxy (secondary) email address, when it hits outlook it will come as the primary reply address and not the secondary proxy address, so I dont think conditional formatting will work in that case with that criteria.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

The email headers will show the secondary address and conditional formatting doesn't look at actual email headers.

There is where my dilemma sits.  Are there alt solutions that you can think of.  I looked at the rules as well as Exchange transport rules and I cannot see anywhere to address this?

Unfortunately the only thing I can think is if you use a transport saying the emails matches the secondary address you can redirect to another mailbox, but that will not help your situation. There is nothing that i can think of the help with your particular request.

I get other than creating a mailbox with a forwarding rule.   I do not want to waste a CAL on this.

What about a distribution list.  Would that work?

Yes you can use a distribution list email address.
