instead of creating a user called sales and forwarding to outside contact, you 
could create a distribution group called sales and have the only member as the 
contact record for the external person you created in ADUC.

        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 
        is a security hole as an unneeded user account exists that can be
        comprimised.  Any ideas.
