  • Multiple domains

    There is an article in the KB about setting up an Exchange Server to accept mail from multiple domains. I have successfully implemented that on an SBS 2003 Server. Now I have two related projects to complete.

    When an email arrives in a user's inbox from the second domain, and I hit 'reply', I find that the user's primary email domain is used for that reply, regardless of which domain the inbound email was addressed to. How do I allow users to select the domain they want to appear on reply emails on-the-fly ?

    I also need to have inbound email from the secondary domain arrive in a subfolder of the user's inbox, but I don't see how to set up a rule for that. Can it be done in Outlook 2003, or using the Exchange System Manager ?

    Natively, what you want to do cannot happen for outbound email.
    As far as Exchange is concerned all users only have one email address - the default - and all email sent by that user will have that email address on it. Any other email address on the account is an alias and used for inbound email only.

    There are various ways using additional accounts and third party tools.

    As for email sent to another address being sent to a folder, rules will do that, you have to use a rule that looks at the headers.

      Thanks for the reply.

      Regarding the rule, I don't see an option when creating a rule that says 'to a specific domain', like the option that says 'from a specific person'. Can you point me more explicitly to the options that result in the rule I need ?

        You can't wildcard it.
        You would have to use specific words in the header and then enter the email address. If you don't use the complete email address then the rule will either not fire or will work on messages that you don't want it to.
