SBS2008 add second mailbox for user

I'd like to know the correct way to add a second exchange mailbox for an existing user on SBS2008.  This can be via wizards or cmdlets - i'm not fussy.

It seems messy to create to a second AD account just so the user has another mailbox.


I have a user - lets call him Bob Smith  
He has a domain user account BobSmith.
He has already an exchange mailbox bobsmith@domain.tld
He has an alias bsmith@domain.tld which has been added to bobsmith@domain.tld
He has Outlook 2003 and is connected to his exchange mailbox via mapi and receives mail for bobsmith@ and bsmith@ OK
This exchange mailbox is shared to other users on the network

Bob now wants a second mailbox which is 100% private and not shared.
He'd like bs@ as a second mailbox, but attached to his domain account bobsmith.

In outlook he expects to see two mailbox
The first: bobsmith@ (which also recieves bsmith@)
and a second mailboc bs@ which has his private, unshared mail.
