Can this be accomplished without creating a group mailbox?

Appreciate any feedback on how to accomplish this.

Second mailbox

by p.j.hutchison In reply to Exchange 2007

Yes, that is possible, it will also need an Active Directory account as well. This is known as a 'Shared' mailbox (even ifs its only one person), then you can modify its Mailbox permission to give the user full rights on it. They can then add it to their Outlook profile.

Do they really need a second mailbox, why don't you just add an alias to the users account?

New Email address

Yes, that is possible, open Exchange Management Console, click on Recipient Config, Mailbox and Find and open Properties of the user and add an additional Smtp E-mail address in whatever format you require.

Seen as though it's only one user that needs another address it's better just to add an alias to their account in active directory rather than putting an entry in the Recipient policy which would then apply to all users that get created post this change.
