Adding contact to Active Directory?
Posted on 2004-04-22
We are currently using Small Business Server 2000
With regards to the following description, I need a step by step guide on how to...
I have already set up a distribution list to recieve external emails to firstname.lastname@example.org The idea being that any emails sent to this address from both internal and/or external will be forwarded to all contacts/users who are members of that distribution list...
Now for the bit I am stuck on! There are two persons that need to recieve these emails', me, email@example.com and this isnt a problem because I am a contact in the global address book so can be included in the setup... But I also need to add a personal who has to recieve these emails via an external email address because he doesnt directly work for our company and does some consultancy work for us! His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The problem is that unless you are a contact in the active directory you can not be selected in the global address book and therefore can not recieve the mail...
A former work colleague has suggested creating a contact, not a user and defo not a mailbox, but how do I do this?? I cant find any material on creating contacts in Active Directory??? HELP???
I very much look forward to hearing from you soon.
