  • Alias problem

    I used the Petri tips for adding alias on exchange 2003 & 2003 Server with no problem.

    Now I used the same tips on exchange 2003 & SBS 2003:
    user in AD : [email protected]l
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    Well when I check the mail with outlook, looks like that all the mail is sent to [email protected]l.

    I am not able to read the real adressee in the mail, but if I read the header I can see the real adresse.

    Exchange change the alias recipient with the user name.

    That wasn't happening with the first configuration, when I was able to read the real recipient in the TO field.

    Any tips?
    thanks and sorry for my bad english

    Not clear what your problem is here!
    Is it that when you use Outlook internally on the lan, and you put in the To: field [email protected], it resolves to [email protected]? If so, that is normal in any exchange - and no different on SBS.

      The problem is

      I'm not able to know if the message received in my mailbox was sent to [email protected] or to [email protected] because in both case I read only:
      TO: John <[email protected]>

        You can create a Wizard Rule in Outlook that moves the email sent_to an alias emailaddres, to an other INBox-folder in outlook. (Save that rule on the server).
