  • Complex Exchange/Active Directory Migration, need guidance.

    Hi There,

    This might be a bit convoluted, so I appreciate anyone who can read through, understand and help out on this:

    My current setup is as follows:

    Internal Domain: internal.com
    External Site/Company Name: external.com
    I want to change the setup of this by having the internal.com name change to external.com. The internal.com is reference to our former company name (over 10 years ago) and I have been tasked to bring this all into line. So far, I have successfully managed to set up ADMT and migrate a user from internal.com to external.com, and translate their profile.

    My question comes with the application and transition of Exchange. Currently, my live mailserver is mail.internal.com. I have a second Exchange server, built and named mail.external.com, sitting on my new external.com domain. I need to be able to migrate users over in a controlled fashion from internal.com to external.com, move the mailboxes, and for mail still to route correctly (as this has to be a controlled migration).

    I am basically asking for guidance on how I can configure Exchange to have say [email protected] (hosted on mail.internal.com) to migrate this mailbox to mail.external.com, and for email to still be able to route through and deliver to the new external.com mailserver, despite the MX records remaining pointing to mail.internal.com.

    I hope that makes sense, and any and all help is appreciated.

    You are sharing the SMTP address space.

    That just requires some configuration of Exchange:
