  • Microsoft Exchange 2007 Standard configuring the email address format users will have

    I have the following scenario:
    • Currently, mydomain.org is hosted by XYZ.com (/w webmail service)
    • I have two Windows Server 2008 domain controllers: mydomain1.org and mydomain2.org
    • I am installing a member server in mydomain1.org and configuring it with Exchange 2007 standard.
    • Eventually a second exchange server will be added under mydomain2.org
    Objective: I want all users (from both domains) to have email addresses with the following format: [email protected], [email protected], etc.

    When I go through the process of installing and configuring exchange, I am not sure what I should enter for my Exchange Organization name: mydomain.org? mydomain? mydomain1.org? mydomain1?

    Given the fact that my external domain (mydomain.org) is different then the internal domain (mydomain1.org) where my exchange server is, I need to add the external domain as an accepted domain. Are there any other settings I need to be aware of? What setting determines the email address format end users will have (e.g. [email protected] versus [email protected])?

    so you want the two internal domains to have internal domain names (ie domain1.local and domain2.local) for which the exchange server will accept and deliver mail.

    You also want domain.com as an external address, and all users in domain1.local and domain2.local to have this email addresss as well?

    your recipient policy should look something like:

    %g.%[email protected]
    %g.%[email protected]
    %g.%[email protected]

    this will give you:
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    Is that what you're after ?

    The Recipient policy (at least it was this in 2003) is where you would define this

      Thanks for the quick response. That's exactly what I am looking for. I don't care about [email protected] or [email protected]. I just care about [email protected]. I need to know how to configure this in Exchange 2007.

      Also, does it matter what I call my Exchange Organization? It says this is usually your company name or your domain name. Since I have one external domain and two internal domains, I don't know what I should call my Exchange organization.

        give it the external name would be my suggestion.

        You need to find Recipient Policy. I'm not strong enough with Ex2007 to tell you where sorry

        you may find some assistance at this link:

          I have installed Exchange 2007 and named my Exchange organization "mydomain.com". I then created a test mailbox. The email address is showing up as [email protected], which is the internal domain in which the exchange server is. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I DON'T WANT. Can someone assist???

            after actually reading over the link I posted you, isntead of taking a gues it might help, I was able to establish that the post I linked DOES in fact, tell you how to do it.

            I'm sorry I'm not an expert, and I'm sorry my attempts to assist you came to nothing.
