I should know this, but my brain is just pulling a blank today.  We've got a sytem with Exchange 2000 on a Win 2000 Server domain with Active Directory.  When we set up a user in AD it automatically creates their email address, etc.  What I need to do is create an email address without a corresponding AD login (i.e. just a generic email address without a matching user login).  I asked one of my techs to set this up, and was told that in order to have an email address they have to set up an AD user.  I'm about 80% positive that this is wrong.  We should be able to set up an email without a corresponding user id.  I just can't remember how.  Can someone give me direction on setting up an email address in Exchange 2000 without having to set up an AD user?  Thanks.
