Adding a second smtp address to a CONTACT (not a mailbox) in Exchange 2013 - Possible?

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

No You can't but you can use a trick

If you have contact with email address you can go to mail flow and create rule

If message Is sent to  "yourcontact@email.com" then BCC to "SecondAddress@email.com"

I just tested on my contact for outside GMAIL address and I've created rule to BCC all emails from my domain to my contact address to go to Outlook.com domain address and I got 2 emails. On my contact address and copy on Outlook.com address

This sollution will give you option to send to more than 2 addresses since you can put more addresses "BCC to" in your rule

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.
