I am configuring Exchange Server 2000 and am having a problem with a contact address.  I have a pager that can receive email but it's an ugly address.  So, I've set up a contact in Exchanger ( that routes to my ugly pager email address.  However, I'd also like a copy of the email to go my regular user mailbox  ( so I can see the entire message if it's too long for my pager.  Exchange won't let me add that address to the contact because it's already defined.  Is there a way around this?

You can make that address a distribution list, and add as many addresses as you like to it.  The distribution list will have an smtp address like any other, and any email that comes to it will be distributed to its members.

Well, duh!  LOL  I was so hung up on creating a Contact that I couldn't see the DL answer right there in front of my face.
