Simply open Up Exchange Management Console, Expand Recipient Configuration, Mailbox.  Find your user.  Double-click on the user in question.
On the Email Addresses Tab, Click on Add, then add te new email address and make sure the type is SMTP, then click on OK.
Job done.

Go to the Exchange server and access Microsoft Exchange Console in All Progams\Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. Right Click on the users name RECIPIENT CONFIGURATION\Mailbox and select "Properties". Click the "Email Addresses" tab and you will see their default SMTP address. Any additional addresses you create there will resolve to that user. Hope this helps.

Hi,

It is as much simple with Exchange 2007, but you have to use the "Exchange Management Console" instead of ADUC to do that.

In the Exchange Management Console, in the left side go in the container "Recipients Configuration" / "Mailboxes". Right click on the user mailbox and choose "Properties".
In the "Properties" window click on "email addresses" tab. Then click on "Add" button to add a new SMTP address.

Have a good day.

Since there are 3 equally correct answers but only 500 points to give, I have a bonus part 2 question to ask.

If I took the steps above and created an email alias such as HR.Jeff.NEW.JOB@domain.com would emails go to jschultz@domain.com?  And if so this would be cool it would be useful and after they get tired of all the emails from all the job seekers they could simply have me remove the alias, and poof all the emails would bounce back.  right?

Yes - emails will continue to arrive to both email addresses once you have created an alias, but you won't necessarily know which email address was used unless you examine the email address headers.
and Yes - if the email alias is removed after a while, any emails to the alias address will bounce right back.
