  • Sending through second domain

    Hi,

    I have a Exchange 2003 setup working with our primary domain.

    I have just added a second domain and am able to receive email through this second domain fine with our existing accounts with a second SMTP address.

    My question is, is it possible to send through the second domain without making it the primary domain? I have found many articles on how to setup exchange to receive emails for two or more SMTP domains, but we have a situation where I want to keep our existing accounts but send through this second domain?

    I have tried including the FROM box in my email and specifying the second email address, but this returns an error and does not work.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    That you can do using from box but it will not work until unless you disable authentication from SMTP virtual servers.

    But personally I will not recommend it at all as it's a big security threat.

      I think a little clarification is in order.

      I think what you are trying to accomplish is ( current domain: mydomain.com 2nd domain hisdomain.com) You recieve email into [email protected] and you want to have the reply from [email][email protected] is that correct?

        Exchange is not designed to allow you to select email addresses.
        As far as Exchange is concerned each account has one email address. That address is used for outbound email. Any other email addresses are used for inbound only and are aliases.

        You basically have two choices.

        1. Separate accounts and the from field
        2. Third party tools like "choose from" from ivasoft.biz.
