Add new SMTP address using parameters %g%s
The @domain.com should be already there.

%g & %s are parameters. %g is the firstname & %s is the lastname. If you don't use parameters, Exchange will automatically generate an email address using the LOGON name (not user first name as they can be different)

So from above, your user will have THREE email addresses created. I am using Peter Smith as a naming sample, and his user logon name is PeterS

The THREE email addresses created are :-
1. PeterSmith@pleimert.dk
2. PeterS@hosted.exchange
3. PeterS@pleimert.dk

Exchange will use PeterS@pleimert.dk as his Primary email address. This means, Peter Smith can receive emails being sent to any of the above email address, but all his outgoing email will be sent as PeterS@pleimert.dk

Hope this is clear.

Hey ... It helps alot what your are writing... but... How can i do so that petersmith@pleimert.dk can recieve all emails that is being written to his domain. no matter if it is hulubaluu@pleimert or bamboo@pleimert.dk or what ever. so that the domain catches everything and forwards it to his email add. ?

Sorry if you allready wrote that to me :)

This is called a Catch-all mailbox.

I am now sure myself how to implement it in Exchange but this is what I found on internet - it requires Exchange 2007.
http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2612134&SiteID=17&mode=1

Most email hosting company (the company which host your external mailbox since you are using POP3) provide this Catch-All option - in this case you create this catch-all email address in your hosted mailbox and forward everything there to Peter Smith.

Alternatively, if you only have a small number of user, you can go into the Properties of each user (in AD), go to Exchange General tab, Click Delivery Options and select Peter Smith as the Forwarding address. Tick the "Deliver messages to both ............." box so all emails sent to that user will be copied to Peter Smith as well. This may not be suitable if you have a large user base because you need to go into each user and configure this - however, you don't really want to configure that if you have large user base anyway because Peter Smith's mailbox could be filled up very soon.

Hope this helps.
