Not sure if 2010 is the same as 2007, but 2007 has delivery options on the user mailbox that allows you to do that.

1) From exchange managemetn console create a contact with the needed email addresses
2) find the user's mailbox under recipient config -> mailbox right click properties -> Delivery Options -> Mail flow settings -> Forward to   Select this check box, and then click Browse to open the Select the contact just created

Thanks for the comments. Akhater. If the user already has a company address setup in the exchange management console do I have to create another seperate account for this user with their yahoo address?
