An Exchange 2000/2003 mailbox may have multiple SMTP addresses assosiated with it. For example, John Doe has a mailbox with a primary SMTP address of email@example.com and secondary SMTP address of firstname.lastname@example.org. As Outlook always resolves both SMTP addresses to a mailbox name, there is no way to see what address the message was originally sent to. The only known workaround is looking through message envelope headers (open a message > View > Options...). Suppose John Doe would like to set a rule to put any emails sent to email@example.com to a separate "JohnD-Inbox" folder. When he tries to set the rule, it does not work because of address resolving.
WhichAddress for Exchange 2000/2003 application allows a user to see which address the message was originally sent to and set up a rule to separate the messages being sent to different SMTP addresses.
The application is an Exchange store event sink.
On your Exchange 2000 Server computer:
1. Create a new mail-enabled user account and make sure it's mailbox alias is WATEST
2. Add the additional SMTP address WATEST1@domain.com
3. Select (or create) user account that is a member of the local Administrators, Domain Admins, Domain Users and Exchange Domain Servers security groups.
That account must have full permissions on the mailbox store. Open ESM (Exchange System Manager) and drill down to the mailbox store in question. Now open the properties and select the Security tab. Add your account and allow full control.
