I have the need to create an email alias i.e. sales@xxxxxxxxxxxx which
simply forwards to an outside address i.e. salesguy@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 
Currently the only way I know to do this is create a mailbox in exchange
2000 by creating an AD user. Then creating a contact with the outside
address.  And finally forwading the mail to the contact.  I feel that this
is a security hole as an unneeded user account exists that can be
comprimised.  Any ideas.
