Recently I had the opportunity to take Exclaimer’s new product, Email Alias Manager for a road test. This was quite timely as over on the new Exchange Ideascale site a few product suggestions asking for this feature are gaining traction.
Both as an Exchange admin and latterly as a consultant I’ve had users and customers ask about this feature and often we need to use workarounds to achieve this, all of which are admin-heavy and clunky for the end-user – so it’s a good feature to see.
Exclaimer Email Alias Manager has a server component, a Transport Agent, and a client-side add-in for Outlook. It works with On-Premises Exchange and Office 365 if you are using Centralised Transport (routing outbound mail via on-premises Exchange). The product is a first version, so it’s not perfect, and I highlight areas where it could be improved, but it’s a pretty good start and integrates well into Outlook.
