how do i give a user multiple email addresses? for example Joe Bloggs has the default email address joe@bloggsco.com but he also wants to have joebloggs@bloggsco.com and maybe more. also for emails sent to our domain but without an associated email address i want to know how to get these sent to a specific address rather than be bounced back.

Thanks.

Hi leatham,
 I think it is the same as exchange 2000.  In your active directory under the user properties go to "email addresses"... and new SMTP address... and type in the name.

I have done that but emails sent to that address continue to be bounced back.

Hmmm, I am running Exchange 2K, perhaps there is some extra security that Exchange 2003 has in place.  I am setting up Exchange 2003 in my test environment.  I will let you know as soon as I have it up.  Sorry my first simple answer did not work.

The answer that was posted should indeed be correct. I am running Exchange 2K3, and I just successfully gave myself a second e-mail address in the manner described, and I was able to send myself a message at that address from the outside.

As for the other item, there's a couple of potential answers to your question. If you're wanting to disable NDRs from being returned to senders, you can go into Exchange System Manager> Global Settings > Internet Message Formats, double-click on your default policy, and then go to the Advanced tab, and uncheck "Allow non-delivery reports". Alternatively, if you're wanting to get a copy of every NDR, then you can have them all sent to a particular e-mail address, by going to the properties of the SMTP virtual server in System Manager, then going to the Messages tab, and then finally putting in an e-mail address on the "Send copy of non-delivery reports to" line.

Hope that helps - please let me know if you need more information.
