What is the best way to do this.

I have a web site a local shcools athletic association on my own server running IIS6.
They want to have their members send a email to saaboard.org and then have the email sent or forwarded to their own personal email accounts i.e. sent to tom@ispa.com and mary@ispb.com. I also host their email on my server.

Thanks

How are you hosting their Email?  MS Exchange?  Mercury?

The actual implementation would likely depend on the solution, of course.  However, in a nutshell, all you should need to do is set a forwarder on the Email system to forward to their separate Email addresses.  Personally, I use a hosted solution, and I have several "generic" Email addresses that are not used by anyone -- they just forward to other addresses.

I'm using ms exchange on windows server 2003. It sounds like you are doing exactly what I need. How do you set the forwarder?

I was afraid that you'd ask me that.  I don't use MS Exchange here, so I am not really sure.  I would guess that you could log into the Email account from the OWA screen and set it up as a forward right there.

This is a shot of my own Email client forwarding screen, which is hosted at Rackspace.  I suspect that you'd find something similar on any other system, too.  If you don't want a separate account for that in your system, an "alias" is another option.  This works like a forwarder, but there is no actual email account for the phantom address.
