A lot of OR staff will have previously had .bt.com email addresses and they may well remain in place as they ultimately are part of BT plc.

MX records for both domains go to the same servers, so I assume Openreach gets its IT Services from BT Group.

No MX record for openreach.com explains the bounce. Yet the BT domain is all on .com, so perhaps it was to show someone they are UK ?

Slightly odd, non-consistent and confusing to the punters though as the main website is .com but all email addresses to the same organisation are .co.uk.

They do if they were in bt group prior to Openreach, but they may not know it.

If its a shared system (e.g. MS Exchange or similar) then primary and secondary aliases are very easy. One system I managed some staff had 6 incoming email aliases due to the number of mergers and acquisitions. Sending address is always up to the mail system admin, but can be different per mailbox. Other systems can also do this, quite easily.
