exchange mail contacts and shared smtp

I need to have multi mail contacts all forwarding out to a separate domain (smtp address).

error:
The proxy address "SMTP:test1@do.com" is already being used by the proxy addresses or LegacyExchangeDN of "do.com/users - Contacts/test1". Please choose another proxy address.( The "MailContact" with display name "test1" is already setup and using the same address.)

thanks

I created a mail contact record with inhouse primary smtp address and then modified the AD attribute MailRoutingAddress to route mail externally

Hi @Efffdd-3114

According to the error information above, we will need to find which mailbox/recipient is using the proxy address, then remove the proxy address from other mailbox/recipient.

Get-Recipient | where {$_.EmailAddresses -match "test1@do.com"}

Or

Get-Mailbox test1@do.com | fl UserPrincipalName,EmailAddresses
