Exchange Server Internet Mail

How do I make the internet reply address of user's mailboxes to be a group address rather than individual?  (e.g a distribution list)
Have tried numerous ways, but it does not seem to allow the same address to be used for more than one mailbox, making the problem of say 10 users having the same reply address seemingly impossible.
Any help on this would be appreciated.

The first thing you need to do is to create a distribution list. When you view the properties of that distribution list goto...Email Addresses...and check that the SMTP address is correct. eg: distributionlistname@domain.com

Close the properties window. Then goto...each users mailbox in turn and goto their properties settings. Then goto Email Addresses...select NEW and then select INTERNET ADDRESS....here you type in the smtp address for the distribution list and then click on "Set as reply address" this will set the distribution lists email address as each users reply to address.

In other words, if anyone receives mail from one of these configured users and replies to it, they will in fact be replying to the distribution list.

Hello Bruce,

I've tried assigning the smtp address to each users mailbox and I get the following error -

The e-mail address already exists in the organization.
