Switched to SMTP and now there's a problem

    up until yesterday, we were getting our mail using the POP3 connector. I
    added an MX record to our ISP's webhosting control panel and now we're
    getting our e-mail quickly and easily.

    the problem is i had previously set up my wife's home e-mail account using
    our domain name so that her e-mail address was also . her
    outlook would simply check into the pop account hosted by our ISP.

    now her e-mail is being sent to our server instead. i added her as a user
    on the sbs2k3 and tried setting her delivery options to forward to her
    earthlink account but the user or object is not recognized. at least her
    e-mail is being saved instead of lost in the abyss.

    is there a way for me to forward all her e-mail to her earthlink.net account?

    thank you and please help because she's going to be majorly po'd once i tell
    her what i did...

  2. Create an AD Contact for her with the Earthlink address, then you can
    either configure the internal account to forward to it, or you can
    delete the internal account and simply add the internal email address
    to the AD Contact.

    Well, I found a solution to my problem.

    Here's what I did:

    1. I created a contact for my wife in the Active Directory Users called
    MYWife and gave it her earthlink.net e-mail address
    2. I created a regular user account for my wife called My Wife and in the
    Exchange General tab i had it forward all e-mail to the MYWife user

    it's working so she'll now be none the wiser :)
