Hi,

Is there any way of creating a NTlogin and adding a External email id?
I have 200 NTlogins and 200 contacts both for 1 user.

My question is Can we remove the contacts and add the external email id in any way to the Ntlogin itself so i have 1 object for both the tasks.

Regards
Sharath

Hi Sharath,

I'm not sure if you're asking what I think you are, but here is my answer anyway and you can let me know if I'm on the right track.

If you are maintaining contact and user objects in Active Directory for each user, you can just use the email field in the user object. There is a built in attribute for this.

Sure.

Open up the user account in Active Directory Users and Computers, and there will be a field called "E-mail" down the bottom of the main "General" tab.

Enter the email address in this field to have the address associated with that user.

No. If you want emails forwarded by Exchange to an external email address, you MUST have both the Contact object and the User Object in Active Directory. If you try to simply associate an external email address with a user object, Exchange will probably bounce the emails sent to the User Account with an NDR.

Don't forget that if the user never logs onto your network, in that case you can delete the User Object. The Contact can still show in the GAL (unless you have hidden it), and users can send directly to a contact object (and the message will be forwarded to the outside mailbox). Do not delete the user account unless the user doesn't actually log in with it to use network resources, though.
