I need help creating a script to allow me to add a "Forwarding Address" on a 1000 users. Does anyone have any ideas?

Currently utilizing Exchange 2003 and Active Directory 2003.

Is it the same forwarding address or a different address for all 1,000 users?
Thanks

it's he same forwarding address <first name>.<last name>@<domain name.com>

I have a script to create the contacts, but I don't know how to add the contact in the AD account to the "Forwarding Address" field and enable the check box to allow email to be sent to both accounts (local email and the forwarding email).

We are going to delete the contact on the source and create a contact with an internal and external address....http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;555187

I found out the only problem with this, it doesn't modify/add/remove the "forwarding to" address.
