Setting up forwarders on Exchange server

Hi,

I'd be grateful for any tips in regard to the below. I'm, hopefully, moving from an IMAP server to an Exchange server. My current host does not offer Exchange services, so whilst the website would continue running with the host, mail would be dealt with (and point toward) an Exchange server as part of Office365. The reason for doing this is because I have a better deal financially from Office365 than having a discrete Exchange server host.
Coming to the core of the problem/question/issue: the really useful setup I had on my host (through cPanel) was a plethora of email forwarders, with only a few real mailboxes behind those. In brief, there were broadly four types:
- email1@mydomain.com, which could be used as a distribution email, to make sure the email arrives to real mailboxes mail1@mydomain.com, mail2@mydomain.com
- email2@mydomain.com, which could be used as a forwarder email, to make sure the email arrives to real mailbox mail1@mydomain.com (so, just like the example above, the difference being it just gets sent to one email address, not several)
- email3@mydomain,com, which could be used as forwarder email, to make sure the email arrives to an external mailbox (gmail, etc).
- email3@mydomain,com, which could be used as a distribution email, to make sure the email arrives to an external mailbox (gmail, etc) and an internal email like mail1@mydomain.co (so, just like the example immediately above, the difference being it gets sent to both an external and an internal email address).

How can I do this in Exchange? What concepts should be looking at and where in the Exchange control panel can I set these up? I'm fairly confident I will be able to once I figure out what is what, but would just need some guidance as to what is what (should this be under 'mailboxes', under 'mail flow'?')

Many thanks in advance for any tips, gratefully received!
