I should create a new mailbox e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. Mails to email@example.com should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. How can I do this with Exchange Server 2007? The best would be without separate Active Directory user, but I'm afraid this is not possible.
I know how I can forward an existing mailbox to an email contact(external) or other internal mailbox. I also know how to forward from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com with the help of a email contact. But how to forward to an internal and external email address without an AD user?
Or another way: I can add the firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com. So firstname.lastname@example.org would receive the email. But how can I forward emails from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org?
- Create a mailbox with email@example.com.
- Create an e-mail contact (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Create a distribution group with two members: My external e-mail contact (email@example.com) and my AD user (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Forward email@example.com to the group.
But now I have created an extra mailbox with AD user, which I wanted to avoid. Also I have now a group with a separate SMTP address, which I also don't need. And I don't know if the difference between Exchange and Active Directory is good (external contact, group not in AD).
