Hello experts,

How do I add a custom recipient in exchange 2007?

I have a distribution group and would like to add members to the group that have outside email addresses (ie hotmail, Comcast).

End result is that any email sent to the distribution group would also be sent to these outside email addresses.

Thanks for you help.

I have to do this for "contractors" that have outside email addresses.  I use 2003 but it should be close.  First you set up the distribution group   The you create a new "contact" but instead of giving it an exchange address, you click the modify button and then select SMTP address.  Finally, add the contact to distribution list.

Create a distributon group and add users in the normal way. Your contacts will appear in the users and select the ones you need.
