  • 1 server 2 domains


    first off, hello all and apologies for starting off with a popular query.

    I can see this type of query has been asked before but the answers were more detailed then I require or understand tbh. they addressed pretty specific circumstances and I struggeled to pick the general principles out of the replies.

    I have an exchange 2003 server hosting and since the company I work for has recently bought the rights to they would like to transfer employees mail address from [email protected] to [email protected].

    Could someone outline (at a pretty general level) what steps I need to set up my exchange server to handle email sent to . At the moment I just want to get an idea of cost - financial and time.

    I am thinking a new MX record is required and then is it as simple as creating secondary email addresses for each user?

    1. create an MX record for the same IP (internet accessible IP, not LAN) for the new domain
    2. give all users an additional smtp address in exchange properties
