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.
