We currently have a user with an exchange email account that is working properly (user@company.com).
I would like to add a secondary exchange email account for this same user (userwithlastname@company.com).
"user@company.com" was created when the user account was created in SBS standard console.
How do I create "userwithlastname@company.com" and attach it to the user?

I assume that  "Recipients > Mailboxes > Email Addresses > Add" is to add an existing email account that is already established and working. Please correct me if this is incorrect.

"Recipients > Mailboxes > Email Addresses > Add new smtp address is correct.

That mailbox will now have 2 email addresses: user@company.com and userwithlastname@company.com but when he replies, the main address will be the one that associate to the email address policy
