    Hi all, need to setup an Exchange mailbox for a user that's not in the
    office, an off-site user. They would access this mailbox via OWA (Outlook Web
    Access). Is there any way to setup a Mailbox only connection in SBS2003 Prem,
    or does one need to add a full user in Active Directory Users and Computers,
    or Server Setup . Users? Thanks in advance - Dodge

  2. All Exchange 2003 mailboxes must be linked to a user account.

    An alternative which may be suitable in this situation is to create a
    'contact'. Email to a contact (eg ) is redirected to their
    existing email address (say, ) and the user never logs onto
    the server.

    SuperGumby -- thanks for the clarification and suggestion. Question, the
    suggested alternative... if someone responded to an email - it would not look
    like it came from the domain and email address it was sent to - is that
    thanks again - Dodge

  4. Unless you take additional steps return email comes from but
    it's easy to add an additional account to their email program which collects
    no mail but allows sending from .
