How to hide e-mail address on website

By CST ·
I have a user who wants an additional SMTP address created for her that would direct e-mail to her from people who hit a link on their website, as in info@nnn.com would go to realuser@nnn.com instead. Of course when I add "info@nnn.com" to her profile in AD as an additional SMTP address, Exchange does its job and "translates" this address to her real name @nnn.com. What we want to do is have the "info" address come to her but not reveal on the website when hovering over the link what her real address is, since when the e-mail is sent to "info" with a receipt it reveals her actual e-mail address and she doesn't want strangers to know her actual e-mail address. How can we get around this? We are running Exchange Server 2003 and the Outlook 2000 client.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

You can create a new dummy user and keep info@nnn.com as a separate mailbox in the server. Outlook 2000 will hopefully (like Outlook 2003) allow you to add another e-mail account to the user. In Outlook you should be able to add two mailboxes to the Outlook desktop from the Exchange Server.

Because there are two different accounts, the inboxes will appear separately.

However, by keeping the inboxes separate the Return Receipt will come from info@nnn.com, not the real address.

Encrypt your email address

by miguilhinhas In reply to How to hide e-mail addres ...

Hello,
there is a webpage, www.emailhide.org, that encrypts your email address in a secure manner. All you nedd to do is type in your email address and is returned html code with a link with your encrypted email. I've tried and now i use it everytime. There's also a automatic gen for webmasters. Check it out.
