    In Active Directory, right click the user, go to Properties.Click the e-mail address tab.
    Click the "new" button, "STMP Address"...and add the aaa email address.
    Now select the new address in the email list and click the button "Set As Primary"
    Keep the old address in there so the user can still accept emails from his old email address in case people still use it.
