Hi There,

This should be easy to answer for some i'm sure.  Can one user on 2003 exchange server have more then one email associated to him? and if the answer is yes, how do you create the second mailbox?  Only way I know to associate a mailbox is by first creating the user in AD and then including a mailbox, but not sure if afterwards you can add an extra mailbox to the same user.


Thanks.

The useraccount can only be assigned to one single mailbox in Exchange (unless I have been asleep in the woods for the past 5 years after drinking from a little mans barrel).  Then create a second account and assign the user the security right to "Send Ass" the account.  Also, to spare the other users on the network, use the Advanced Exchange option to hide the other account from the GAL.  Share the second account's mailbox to the existing user.

Hi,  Do you need a more detailed explanation?

Basically - One user = Zero or One Mailbox (this is Exchange)
If the user needs to receive mail sent to more than one address:
- Add the other addresses to his e-mail addresses in AD (remove automatic update check in check box or,
- Create another account that forwards all mail to the user.
- Create another account - share and assign rights to the user account.

Here only three of the examples that could work for you.
