Cannot setup alias/distribution group for Abuse@domain.com in SBS2008

I need to setup two users to receive email sent to abuse@(domain).com.  It will not let me set up Abuse, it says the alias is in use.  All of the info I have been able to find online just says Abuse and Postmaster are reserved by the server.

Is there any way around this?  I have been unsuccessful searching for a work around so far.

Thanks!

Well you can setup a transport rule...

Org Config --> Hub Tranport -->  Conditions, set to when the from address contains specific words...set to abuse@domain.com -->  Actions, select Copy the message to addresses -- select the two users here

This will not work since I have to choose an existing user as a recipient, cannot set it as any address, unless I am overlooking something

Have you attempted this?   I believe any email that is addressed as Abuse@ that hits the hub server a copy will be send to the users you specified in the actions.

I tried.  Maybe I was doing it wrong but only way it would let me create a rule is to choose an existing user for it to be directed to.

I finally found where Abuse was assigned, removed it.

Created a new Dist. Group but its only accepting internal emails.  I have it set to access email from external addresses though.

It was being redirected by my mail server, nothing to do with the SBS.  So, issue resolved.

Anyone else reading this in the future, Abuse is assigned to a group called Postmaster and Abuse.  Unassigned the Abuse alias there, then created the distribution group with abuse as the alias.

Hope this helps others
