I receive emails from team members that are no longer with the company, and they are just aliases on my exchange account. When someone sends an email to one of the alias's it shows addressed to me unless i look at the header properties. Is there a way to get outlook to show who the original email address was sent to instead of me?

Спасибо, а есть формула, чтобы в отправленных был виден адрес "кому отправлено"?

Hi there,

You can first select the Sent box, and then do as instructed in the artcile, but use the code: right([To],len([To])-InStr(1,[To],"@"))
Note that if you have more than one recipients, it will show the domain of the first recipient and full address of other recipients.

If you want to show Cc and Bcc recipients as well, you can create two more columns by following the exact steps. Remember to change [To] in the code right([To],len([To])-InStr(1,[To],"@")) to corresponding code: [Cc] or [Bcc]

К сожалению, формула вставляет только имя получателя, но не его e-mail

Type : FormulaFormula : IIf(InStr([SearchFromEmail],"@")=0,"",Left([SearchFromEmail],InStr([SearchFromEmail],"@")-1)+"@"+Mid([SearchFromEmail],InStr([SearchFromEmail],"@")+1))

Click OK..Ok..

I wish it would work for "SearchToEmail" as well. But this is only wishful thinking ...

Great Solution - works 99% of the time.  Almost every email now shows the 'Name' of the sender and immediately below the name, it shows the domain as well. 
ISSUE: The initial suspicious email that triggered this concern still shows a blank line under the sender's name.  Thoughts?
