Exchange 2010 Mail

I have a 2010 Exchange and one user needs to have a couple of dummy email addresses setup.  They don't care if they are external or not.  Can I just add these boxes to her account?  Do I need to setup a real mailbox for each new address?

Hello,

If you just want the mail sent to these addresses to go into her mailbox, you can just add the address the the email address tab on her mailbox.

They actually want it to go into its own mailbox.  How would I set it up so that I create a new box and she can access it through her Outlook?  They need mail that comes to that address to be organized in its own container, so it should not be in the same box as the rest of her mail.

Just create the new mailbox with the SMTP addresses you want then right-click the mailbox and select Manage Full Access Permissions. Add the users youwant to be able to access the mailbox. Follow these instructions to add the mailbox to the user's Outlook profile: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft/outlook/add-additional-mailbox-to-outlook-2007/

Would it be easier to use a user or linked mailbox?

A user mailbox would do the trick, just add the full permissions as suggested by jjmck

If you mean use a linked mailbox that is linked to the user you want to access it, that is not possible. Linked mailboxes are inteded to be linked to external accounts. You need to create a mailbox-enabled user.

It would be easier if you add the duplicate (dummy) address to her existing account and create rules in her outlook to move those emails to specific folder and this way you can avoid creating multiple accounts.
