I get a lot of spam, and sometimes cannot unsusbcribe, especially if the website asks me to put in the email address I wish to unsubscribe and does not do it automatically from the link. This is because I have maybe 50+ aliases set up over the years, which I have and still need to keep.
I use Office365 and Outlook 2016 as the client.
How can I determine which of my email address alias a message was sent to when I receive it. I don’t just wish to know I received an email sent to Any alias. I want to know which one of my aliases people used. For instance I wish to know if it was sent to office@ or accounts@ etc. But I can never know... Outlook does not tell you. From what I read, a possible solution is to create a rule in outlook to sort mail, but that means to to create 50 rules, and 50 inboxes and do new rules and new alias inboxes every time I add an alias is a headache.
Is there any way to know which of my aliases were used? Any third party software even or plugin? It’s stupid that Outlook only shows my main email name in the sent to field, Even when an actual alias that was used. Maybe I’m missing something?
Please help.
