    I don't understand what problem you're having.

    Do you mean that you create a user with the primary address "[email protected]" and an additional address "[email protected]" and that the user only receives mail sent to "[email protected]"?

    Do both addresses have the same domain name? If not, have you configured your Exchange server to receive mail for multiple domains?

      I mean a contact not an exchange user
      a contact that have an external e-mail.
      This person want now to recieve 2 mails at different address.

      I had manually haded a second smtp address
      I can make a group and add 2 contacts to this one but i preffer to have a contact maybe is impossible !?

      Thank you

        A brief Google suggests that the supported way of doing this is to create a distribution list.

          An object can only have one email address.
          It is possible to have an internal and external email address and have email sent to the internal address from outside which gets forwarded to the external address. However you cannot add a third address and expect the email to go to both external addresses.
          As already pointed out, if you want email to go to two external addresses then you will need to have two contacts and then put them in to a group.

            OK I make a distributio list at least

            so I misunderstand the meaning of adding a second smtp address to a contact in Exchange 2003

            Thank you
