You would think so but I have had a hard enough time trying to convince
them to use the Outlook rules and folders (without much success) which
would make their life easier. I really do not think I can count on them
to maintain the alias file to make my job easier. I would just end up
with a lot of complaints about it not working and then end up having 
to maintain it myself anyway. I might as well save the time and 
frustration and do it myself. Sometimes it is just not worth it to try
and delegate some tasks.

I will now stop my gratuitous complaining and get back to work.
