I have a person that would like to be displayed in the global address list as two different names.  Is there a way to point two different names in the global address list to the same email address?

The best way to do that is to have an alias. Just create a contact and forward that contact to the original mailbox.

To display in GAL, you'll need two accounts. You can create the main account and create send as/send on behalf, etc on the second account to link it to the main account.

eqqm4n,

Are you talking about a contact in Exchange that everyone can see on the global address list?

Adding a contact in active directory users seems to have worked.  Thanks
