  • Mail Subdomain

    "Hi all,

    I am having trouble setting this up.

    I have a domain "@company.com" on windows server 2003, running exchange 03.

    I have a new subdomain hosted on a seperate mailserver, which is working fine for mail recieved from an outside source via gmail etc. I need to get exchange to route mails to hosts in the subdomain "@list.company.com" to the correct mail server or just get exchange to treat it as an external (not local) recipient. The problem is exchange regards the recipient domain as a local domain and returns a " User unknown in local recipient table".

    Anyone know what to do?

    Cheers

    Re: Mail Subdomain

    This message is not Exchange: " User unknown in local recipient table".
    Something else is generating that message.
    Exchange will not be treating the domain as local - as it does recognise that sub.example.net is different to example.net.

    However, is the separate mail server on the same network as the Exchange server? If so, then that could be a problem with the MX records. What I would suggest is use an SMTP Connector for the sub domain listed as a name space and the server's IP address set as a smart host .

    That means Exchange is not using DNS, it is using the configuration in Exchange.
