Add Email address to Distribution Group
Posted on 2009-04-23
The issue that I am having is I have users that only have blackberries. And they have email accounts email@example.com on a POP server.
I want to add their email addresses to a distribution list so i need to create a contact for them. So i create a contact firstname.lastname@example.org but my server recognizes @mydomain.com and tries to deliver internally instead of sending out onto the internet where the pop server would pick it up.
I cannot just create a user for them because then the internal emails would not be sent to the pop server.
I know you can do this to create external email accounts:
1.) Open ADUC from Administrative Tools
2.) Navigate to MyBusiness, right click and choose New -> Organizational Unit to create a new OU, and call it Contacts
3.) Right Click on the new OU and select New -> Contact
4.) Fill in the details for the contact, selecting an SMTP address - the SMTP address will be their external email address.
5.) Now, you can add them to your distribution group(s)
