Adding 'aliases' (forwarders) in Exchange

    I have just switched from ISP to in-house e-mail
    management. Users used to have alias (forwarders) so that
    let's say [email protected] would go to [email protected] in case someone could
    not spell it correctly.

    How can I do this in Exchange. I do not want to set up
    two mailboxes and have the one user have access to both.

    You can do this in the POP3 Connector Manager, assuming that you are getting
    the mail via POP3.
    Server Management->Internet and E-mail->Manage POP3 E-mail->Open POP3
    Select the mailbox you want to edit and push Edit.
    Set the mailbox type to Global Mailbox and enter the domain (so if you are
    talking about , enter
    Now click on the Routing rules... button. This dialogue will let you sort
    mail according to text present in the to: or cc: lines of the email header.

    We are not using POP3 connector. We were, now we are
    managing our own mailboxes so this reply may have no
    relevance but I will check where you are leading me.

  4. Go to the properties of the user in AD Users and Groups, tab Email
    addresses, and add the smtp-addresses you want this user to be able to
    receive for.
