  • Domain Alias

    We are migrating our POP3 server to an Exchange 2K3 server and was wondering how you tell exchange to look after a host alias. On the POP3 server we have its Primary domain name (abc.om) but are able to specify additional domain names (xyz.com - host aliases) therefore a mail for [email protected] will also get to [email protected] but in the same mailbox.

    in exchange i can only see this feature by adding the additional domain as a recepient policy, however this then populates more email addresses. Is it possible to tell Exchange a host aliases without creating additional smtp addresses in the email tab in AD.

    Thx

    You could create a recipient policy that uses a blank LDAP filter.

      Sorry Daniel, does'nt seem to work, it needs something to populate the email address.

      If you think of anything else let me know, we have over 15 host aliases and i dont really want to populate 15 email addresses to the same AD account.

      Cheers

        If your server is configured to receive mail for domain a.b, then all your recipients will have a @a.b email address. This is configured from the Recipient Policy.

        If you want a user to also get mail sent for 1.2, then you need to add the @1.2 domain to a Recipient Policy, but it doesn't have to be the default one.

        If you add it in the default Recipient Policy then ALL users will also get the @1.2 domain along with the @a.b one.

        If you add it to a different Recipient Policy, then you can use an LDAP filter to focus on the correct users, and only they will get the @1.2 domain.

        But if a user doesn't have both @a.b and @1.2, then they will NOT get mail sent to @1.2.

        So it's either you have 2 email addresses and you get mail sent for both of them, or you only have one, but then you don't get mail sent for the second.

        Hope that clears it up for you.
