Here’s a handy feature idea for an email client: outgoing email address aliasing. This means that whenever I send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org,” that address is substituted with “email@example.com” as the email is sent.
I have someone who always sends me email at the wrong place. If I’m at home, he sends it to work. If I’m working, he sends it home. He tells me that he just replies to where I send the email from. But it doesn’t matter where I send it from, I want all his emails to be sent to the same account.
Wouldn’t it be nice if he could create email address substitution lists in his email client? He could list all my various email addresses as aliases of the single address I want all my email to go to. Then, as his client is sending the email, it substitutes all the aliases with the correct email address.
Does this seem like something that would provide value? Or am I way off in left field here?
