I have a client that has a 2000 domain & 2000 Exchange environment using Outlook XP & 2003.  They want the following:

1.  customer to send emails to this address only - perhaps jobs@domain.com

2.  distribute these emails to certain employees.  

3.  move individual’s emails to this address as well.

4.  group of employees to have access to this email address.

5.  efficiently so as not to eat up email disk space.

Any thoughts?

1 & 2.
Use mail forwarding to forward the mail to jobs@domain.com to a distribution group
soon that certain employees will get the mail..

Rewrite the rest of the question as it is not understandable as to what you want.

This is essentially a question of having a central mailbox that will merge together all of the content of several currently existing mailboxes.

But some of the requirements seem to conflict. Why move existing emails? I say this because I figure that these are also some of the same people who will have mail distributed to them.

Efficiently? What are we deeming efficient here?

You may want to setup a single mailbox for jobs@domain.com
Then configure the outlook clients to open "additional mailbox"
This allows a single central repository for the email.
You can then forward email from this mailbox to anyone or do whatever you want.

Exactly. Just set up that box and let others open it. However, I'd ignore #3... it's easier to do something moving forward than going back.

Thanks for your help.  I am in the middle of implementing.  Will I need to set up further security on Exchange?  I know I had to on 2003 when testing but unsure on 2000.
