Forwarding email to multiple internal accounts

Hi all,

I have exchange 2003 and my question is I set up an email account for the purpose of any response going to that email should be automatically fowarded to multiple internal accounts (3). I went to active directory and clicked on the user properties-exchange general-delivery options. Clicked on foward, then modify. Typed in the 3 accounts that I needed to foward to. When I clicked on OK I get an error message saying too many objects and that I'm only allowed to have 1 address. Is there a way for me to do what I need it to? It would be greatly appreciated.

    By design you can forward the email to only one user. As per your requirement what you can do is create the distribution group (mail enabled).Add the members to whom you need to forward the email and then choose that distribution group under user properties--exchange general-delivery options.

    Accepted Solution

    Open Active Directory Users and Computers--Right click Users OU--Select New-- Group--Put the name--Select Group type as distribution and Group scope as Universal--click Next---Select the check box -"Create an Exchange email address".

    Make sure that this group is been stamped with email address.

    Once you created the group , add the required members in this group by going to properties of the group and in members tab.

    Then use this group under user properties--exchange general--delivery options.
