Answer to question 1.

Create a distribution group for info@company.com and then add kim@company.com to that distribution group.

Alternatively just add info@company.com as an additional email address for kim@company.com

as for forwarding externally then try create a mail enabled contact as per: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281926

To forward mail to an external recipient, please follow this link:


To forward internally, please visit the Active Directory Users and Computer account for the mail you want to forward, look at the properties of the account and then click onto the Exchange General Tab, then on the Delivery Options Button, clik on the Forward To under Forwarding Address and select the user account you want to forward to.  Then choose to "Deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox" option.

1. To forward one exchange email account to another exchange email account on same server you need to open active directory users and computers -> Right click on the user whome mails needs to be forwarded and go to the properties -> Exchange General->Delivery Options ->and select forward to option and configure forwarding of the mails to both mailbox and forwarded address.

2. To forward the mail to any outsider account you'll need to create a Mail contact with outsider e-mail address and configure forwarding by the same above method.
