Email Message Validation in Lead Object


My organization have an issue with manual's emails been sent with the incorrect "From Address" and we need to have a validation rule to prevent this human error from keep happening. I looked at the Email Message Validation Rules but it cannot be done because it doesn't have the "RelatedTo" lookup field. I used the ParentId field but it seems that this is only getting populated with the "Case" object.  Below the validation I tried to do, and I need to find a workaround.

and(ISPICKVAL(Parent.Lead__r.field,'one'),FromAddress != ''), 
and(ISPICKVAL(Parent.Lead__r.field,'two'),FromAddress != '')

Looking around traiblazer communities suggested a trigger, but  I don't see the Lead object listed as a related object in the "RelatedTo" field.

I need to validate the "From Address" for the email to be sent to a Lead based on a specific picklist value of the record, any sugestion how to acomplish this?

Hi Rajamohan, When I was looking at the Email Message object the “Related To “ didn’t include the lead object. [image:] *Nancy Rodriguez* | Senior Salesforce Administrator (954)-395-2644 * *

I haven't been able to connect the Lead object to the Email Message object, I'm in need of a solution here.
