Hello,
We are running Exchange 2003 on an SBS2003 box. We want to delete some user accounts like
Millie, Dan, and Steph.
But we want thier emails to continue to go to Joe,  a manager. How can this be done efficiently and quickly?
Thank you for your awesome support.

Delete the accounts and add the email addresses as aliases to Joe's account.  That way he will still receive the emails.

The alternative is to just disable the accounts and redirect the mail to Joe.
