Putting a rule on the Gwia, possible ?

We merged with a new company that had its domain newcompany.com and ours is ourcompany.com, so we took the new domains as ours too in that any mail sent to newcompany.com and ourcompany.com get into our Groupwise system without problems. The issue was that some of this new comers had the same name with the existing users, so we have to create new accounts for them, but the mails sent to newcompany.com now go to the user who was in the ourcompany.com. So I thought if it was possible to put a rule somewhere that newuser@newcompany.com should be directed to newuser_newname@newcompany.com before it gets into our Groupwise system.

Set the "user is knows exclusively by this domain" (or whatever it's called)
setting for both users -- one for the newcompany.com and one for the
ourcompany.com user. Then on the newcompany.com user, add a nickname for
the old email address.

ConsoleOne, properties of the user, GroupWise tab, Internet Addressing.
There's a checkbox "For incoming mail, recipients are known exclusively by
this Internet domain name"
