forward email from one address to multiple address's through Exchange

  We are wanting to create a list service, so we would have one email address that people would write into and everyone that would be on the list would get the email.  The main address would be on my exchange server.  Is  there anyway to add email address's to this address that are not on this domain.  So that anytime an email went to that account, it would be forwarded out of our domain and sent to the appropriate address's.  I guess what I am looking to do is to forward to multiple address's outside of my domain.

thanks in advance

You will need to create a distribution list in Exchange as normal - attaching the required email address to it.
Then add internal users to it as required.
You haven't said which version of Exchange, but presuming 200x you will then create mail enabled contact for each external user and add these mail enabled contacts to the distribution list.
This will of course mean that you have to manage the list by hand through Exchange. The users cannot add and remove themselves from the list automatically.

If you are looking at a large number of users (perhaps 50 or more) then you might want to look at seperate list software. Most of the major applications (Lyris, Listserv etc) have limited versions that allow you to have a list of 500 users free.
