How can I create an email address alias for a user?

Hello,

I need to create an email address alias for a user.  

Example, I have a user username@domain.com, but I would also like mail addressed to info@domain.com to go to this user.  How can I do that?

go into AD, right-click on the user, then click on the EMAIL address tab, add a new entry, select SMTP, then type in info@domain.com

There is no such object on the server.
Facility: Win32

Ok, so I actually have to create a new user and mailbox?  Thats what I was trying to avoid.  Ok, thanks.

Ok, figured it out...  Your first solution works which was my first idea.  The problem was that I was signed onto the server with my own account (which is an admin act) instead of the actual administrator account.  I logged in as Admin and it allowed me to create the alias and it works just fine.

Thanks.
