I have a user who his email is George@abc.com

He had to register for the county for something and it required a different email every time. The thing is he only has one and he gave them 4 that don't exist. How can I add the bottom for to his account? Meaning if someone sends him an email to any of those 4 addresses it will go to his main mailbox George@abc.com

In exchange you can add additional SMTP addresses to an account. Only one will be the primary and that will be the one that will be used as the from/reply to address when send email

Using the EMC

1. Expand the recipients
2. Expand the correct mode (sounds like mailbox in this case)
3. Select the mailbox and go into it's properties
4. Select the e-mail addresses tab
5. Click on Add and enter an additional address

Glad I could help.  That feature comes in handy when someone changes their name such as they get married/divorced or if the organization decides to change the format of their email addresses. It permits an easier transition between addresses.  While in there you can select any of the addresses and make it the primary SMTP address so that any email going out from that user will have a return to that new address yet they can still receive email addressed to any other address in the list.
