    Re: Add Second Domain Name

    I'd agree! Mail does not seem to be able to find your mail server.

    Here's entry for your MX records:
    Your 1 MX record is:

    0 [TTL=3600] IP= (No Glue) [TTL=83091] [US]

    You say that this is the second domain on your server. So the first thing that I would check is the MX record for your first domain. If your first domain is working, then make sure that the second domain is using the same IP address as the first.

    That should hopefully get you up and running!

      1. First you must have a MX record in the public DNS.
      2. Configure Exchange from ESM, access to Recipient Policies, the add the new SMTP domain.

      I suggest you to do carefully because RUS in Exchange 2k3 will add a new account for every user who have a mailbox in the Exchange 2k3.
