Creating a contact:
Open Exchange Management Console (EMC)--> Expand Recipient Configuration--> Click Mail Contact--> In the Action pane click New Mail Contact to start the wizard.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you already have a user that is going to receive e-mail from this new account you can go to the users e-mail address tab and add an SMTP account by that e-mail address.  The e-mail address must be in your domain.  For example if john@consoco.com wants to receive e-mail for sales@consoco.com you could add that e-mail address to his user account. You would not need to create a user account or a contact.
