  • Message routing in shared address space

    150 user AD domain, Win2008, Exch2007 SP2. Building new servers and an entirely fresh domain "Green" (on the same wire as old domain "Blue") which will share single SMTP address space during staged transition of users.

    I plan to set up all users, groups and mailboxes in Green ready to go and when I change MX record, will need to firstly route mail back to Blue. I have read technet. microsoft. com/en-us/library/bb676395%28EXCHG.80%29. aspx which provides method for message routing.

    Can I have duplicate SMTP addresses prepared on Green server but excluded from mail routing?

    As I move a batch of users by dept into Green, I need to switch routing for only those addresses. Can I do this through Email Policy?

    Anyone done similar - assistance appreciated. Cheers

    If the SMTP address appears on an object, then Exchange will not route it.
    The only way to really do this kind of move is big bang, or mail enable as you require them.
    You can't really have everything mail enabled in advance.
