Alias to multiple destinations in Exchange Online

I am trying to setup an address in Exchange Online that will forward to multiple recipients, some hosted on the Exchange Online account and some external.

For Example:
Our battery backup system sends power out alerts to UPS@MyDomain.com
That address gets forwarded to several people.
IS_Manager@MyDomain.com
IS_Tech@MyDomain.com
555-555-1111@CellTextGateway.net
555-555-2222@CellTextGateway.net

MyDomain.com is the domain hosted at Exchange Online.

We can currently do this with our hosted POP server, but are looking to migrate to Exchange Online.

Internal with the Online if the accounts "IS_Manager@MyDomain.com and IS_Tech@MyDomain.com" will be on the same Online server and it should also work for "@CellTextGateway.net" .... i dont see an issue and you can always query the Online Support personal with such queries and what workaround can be done :)

But from the Exchange side you can only do a single forwarding rest need to be done with some Outlook or Server rule.

I tried creating a server rule, but when I send to it I get an unknown recipient reply.

What is UPS @ example.com at the moment? A mailbox?
The usual method for this would be a group, that will allow you to list as many people as you like. Although remember with Exchange you can only add people to a group who have an object in Exchange. Therefore any external addresses will need to be added as Contacts.

On our POP server, UPS@MyDomain.com is defined as an alias.  It doesn't have it's own mailbox.

Right now, I don't have it defined as anything on Exchange.  It just appears in one of the rules.

Create a group called UPS then, mail enable it and add the users to it.

"Rules"? Do you mean transport rules? You need to remove that transport rule. You need to configure it on a group.

I spoke too soon.  That worked for addresses in the domain, but how do I add the text message gateways to the distribution list?

As I wrote in my earlier response, you have to create a contact for every address to add to the group. You can only add AD objects to a group.
