Need email to go to more than one email address besides user assigned

We have a sales account linked to our website which any sales info someone from the outside emails the linked address, it goes directly to the individual with that address assigned to their user profile in exchange. I know you cannot assign more than one user an address in the domain. Is there an alternative way for mail going to the user assigned "sales@" to go to more than one person. I don't want to create a user mailbox for the address and have users login to it, I want the mail to somehow get routed to all three individuals when it is sent. Thanks.

The easiest way is to forward that email to a distribution group and add those people  as members who you want to receive the email.
What version of Exchange are you using?

We just moved to exchange 2013. Do I create a distribution group, and add the email "sales@" to that? Then put users in it?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Ok so would I do this:

Create distribution group in exchange 2013 recipients-->groups-->, then add each user. Take the email address off the one user who it I assigned, and then add it to the groups-->email options?

This would send out to all users in that group? Can I do this all in exchange 2013, and not have to use AD?

Yes you can simply create a DL with the Email address and remove any object with that email first and then add members to the DL and test

OK able to send email internally and everyone in the sales group receives, however from externally email is getting bounced back? Is there something that needs to be set on the distribution group?

Error is:

550 5.1.1 User unknown (in reply to RCPT TO command)

Diagnostic Code: smtp; 550 5.1.1 User uknown

Exchange 2013 On the "delivery Management" option for properties of the distribution group, I had to clear only allow email from within organization, and allow for both inside and outside of organization.
