  • multiple domains on one exchange server

    I setup my exchange to receive email for multiple domain name.
    domaina.com and domainb.com.
    I'm able to send and receive emails between these 2 domains and from domaina.com I'm able to send and receive emails from outside source. in domainb.com I have a problem I'm able to send out emails fine but I'm unable to receive emails from outside source.
    I checked my MX and A record for domainb.com and they are the same like domaina.com. (both domains records are being host on a 3rd party domain register)
    I also check this issue with my other email server and I got the follow err message:

    SMTP error occurred while sending message to following recipient(s)

    [email protected]domainb.com

    [11004] Valid name, no data record of requested type



    I will appreciate any idea anyone might have.

    Here is some system info
    Windows 2003 SP2 Enterprise
    Exchange 2003 Version: 6.5.7638.1

    Thanks

    Have you set up a recipient policy for the domain?

      That is not an Exchange error. Therefore the problem is outside of Exchange. Ensure that your DNS records are correct.

          Thanks everyone for reply back.

          to your questions :
          I did set the recipient policy for the domain name in my exchange. it is showing in the exchange tab when I create a new user.

          You are right this is not an err message from exchange. I did say that this was a test from my other mail server (argosoft) to the exchange server that hosting both of the domains. I do not have any problem to send anything from this server to the domaina.com but I do have a problem to send anything to domainb.com I did another test from my gmail account and got the following err message from gmail.

          ""
          Technical details of temporary failure:
          The recipient server did not accept our requests to connect. Learn more at http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=7720
          [mail.domainb.com. (0): Destination address required]
          ""


          I did check my host file and it is look OK. I also ran a spyware/adware/virus check and it show clean system.

          Here is my DNS and MX records for domainb.com

          A host 75.xx.xx.xx
          Cname mail.domainb.com 75.xx.xx.xx
          MX 0 75.xx.xx.xx mail.domainb.com
          MX 10 mail.domainb.com 75.xx.xx.xx

          These are the same setting that I have on my domaina.com and it is working fine with it.
          Please let me know if you need more information.
          Thanks
