    Stupid exchange question

    It may seem stupid and easy to some of you, but I've never really dealt with Exchange so please bare with me.
    At a site with SBS server running with Exchange on it, they have accounts@ going to a users email address.
    Now they want another user getting the accounts@ emails forwarded to them.

    I've looked in AD and can't see any user or group that has the email accounts@ so therefore can't find if its just basic forwarding using the delivery options tab. I also can't find any distro groups called accounts@ to add this user as a member.
    Where else could I look? Basically accounts@ has to go to user1@ and user2@

    Any help is appreciated.
    Cheers

    Use the find option in exchange ad.

    change the Search from users,etc to Exchange and a load of exchange specific search options will appear

    yep, done that, searched and it lets you search for users with mailboxes and groups etc. but no easy way of finding where the options for accounts@ are

    No, we need any email sent to accounts@ going to two seperate users. I know I could just create a distro group but obviously something is already in place as accounts@ is already going to a single user. So if I could find where this accounts@ info is I could hopefully just add another recipient.

    i mean there must be something in exchange or active dir already that says any mail that goes to accounts@ is the forwarded on to user1@.
    i need it to be changed to be forwarded to user1@ and user2@

    i need to find this information to be able to edit it.
    I cannot find anything mentioning accounts@ as an email address, a user or a group, so I cannot edit it

    so you want to find the e-mail address of a users or group?

    or do you want to forward something onto a user but still deliver the message to the indented recipients mailbox?

    i might have to put this on hold as the information i'm getting from the site is sounding sketchy at best.
    i've now been told they want user2@ emails forwarding to accounts@. but accounts@ might not exist.
    i love remote support :P

    Accounts is probably an smtp alias. In the "email addresses" tab for the user that is already receiving it (will need to check from the exchange server or a machine with the exchange managment tools installed). If it's just a second address then I'm not sure you can just use it again as it's in use. Probably going to need a distribution list in that case

    AHA! Checked in the users addresses and there is an smtp alias in there for accounts@

    Thanks for that.
    And thanks FN for bearing through this madness
