We are running SBS 2003 w/ the built-in Exchange. On the server I have three domains. Company1, Company2, Company3...

I have a user called Info. Thus, this user has three email addresses, Info@company1.com ,etc.

Currently, when mail comes in for any of these three domains, it is forwarded to a group. I would like to split this, so I can have mail coming in for Info@Company1.com go to one group, Info@Company2.com go to another group, and so on.

I tried to set up a 'Contact' but when i try to add the user 'Info' it says the name already exists in this organization.

Suggestions?

The usernames need to unique (display name doesn't matter). So make the usernames info.company1, info.company2 & info.company3 or something similarly unique

THe email addresses need to be unique as well, so delete the email alias's from the original account for company 2 and 3, then create info.company2 and manually set the email address to what you want.

Repeat for info.company3.

How do I have each company's email forward to the correct group without setting up different user\email acct for each company?
