I should create a new mailbox e.g. email@example.com. Mails to firstname.lastname@example.org should be forwarded to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org. So email@example.com would receive the email. But how can I forward emails from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com?
- Create a mailbox with firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Create an e-mail contact (email@example.com)
- Create a distribution group with two members: My external e-mail contact (firstname.lastname@example.org) and my AD user (email@example.com).
- Forward firstname.lastname@example.org 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).
