  • Exchange 2007, multiple domains

    Hi.
    I have an "original" domain name that works well for sending and receiving emails.
    I have bought a few more domain names and wish to allow the exchange server to receive and send emails from those new domain names.

    I have set the MX records to point to the original mail.domainName.com alias.
    I then added the new domain names in the Accepted Domains of the Exchange Server 2007 management console.

    I then added an email address to an existing mailbox user for those domain names.

    when I send an email TO the new domain names (From a Hotmail account), I get a postmaster failure error message.

    what am I doing wrong?

    seems like I got it to work. I needed to remove the priority 0 for the mx record on the new domains.
    so great, I can send mails TO the new domains and it receives it.
    now, how do I do this:
    when RECEIVING the emails which are sent TO the new domains, to receive it with the new domain showing in the "to" rather than the default domain on the dns/server?
    example:
    original: somesite.com
    new domain: brandnewsite.com
    any emails sent to brandnewsite.com, I want to see that in the email but instead it shows as "somesite.com"
    2) what about the reply to? can I select which account the reply gets sent from? I want to reply from the new domains or reply to the sender with the domain it was sent to originally?

      As far as Exchange is concerned, all users only have one email address - the default. All others are aliases for inbound only.

      If you want to send and receive on another address then you will have to create another mailbox, grant permissions to it (Send as and Full Mailbox) then add it to Outlook as an additional account.

      You cannot just pick another address from the list on the account.

        thanks Simon

        when you say at it to outlook as an additional account, can you explain what you mean? I am referring to OWA as the client

          Outlook is not OWA.
          In OWA you have to choose to open another mailbox.

            understood and I know the difference

            what im getting at here is, is there a way in OWA I can use the 1 email account to send and receive from different domains?
