I know I can add SMTP addresses to mailbox accounts. This is a contact object, not a mailbox, that is a member of several distribution lists and appears to only allow one primary SMTP. If I attempt to add anything else it will only allow for an internal domain address. Someone has requested that list messages for this contact go to TWO addresses. Is this possible?

you can't add more than one smtp address to a contact since the system wouldn't know which address to send it to when you select the contact

you can add more than one to a mailbox account - though it will only send out using the primary smtp address; the others are for receiving

Well this did work - it was a kludge workaround but yeah that did it. Just like you said - made a rule, if recipient is...then Bcc: to and created another mail contact with the same name and the number 1 on it to make it unique. Thanks.
