Forwarding "phantom" email accounts in Exchange 2007...

I have two freelance people who look after advertising tasks in the company, who are not members of our company.  I want to set up, say, webdesign@domain.com, and ads@domain.com, and forward any emails to two Hotmail accounts owned by others.

I'd rather that webdesign@domain.com and ads@domain.com were not actual user accounts on our server, since they are only there to forward emails, and to give us some control.

Is there a way to do this?

If you are using POP3 (although unlikely) then you can set the forwarder in your external mailbox.

If you are using SMTP then they must have an account on your system even though only for forwarding purpose. You can setup a CONTACTs in order to forward email being sent to ads and webdesign to the relative CONTACTs. Contact should contain an external smtp email address, such as hotmail.

Ok, so in the end, if I want to send email from two domain.com accounts to 2 off-site addresses, I must create two users on the domain.com domain, right?
