  • Reply to domain it was sent to?

    So I already have a domain that email addresses send and receive from.
    I have added another domain name for a user to accept incoming mail from.

    they can receive the mail when sent to the 2 different domains.
    They can also reply.

    How can I make it so that whatever domain the email was coming into is replied from?


    email: [email protected]
    email new: [email protected]

    a user "info" can receive emails to both email addresses above.
    But when the user replies to a message, I want the user to reply coming from the domain that the email was sent to
    if it was sent to "", I want the reply coming from ""
    if it was sent to "", I want the reply coming from ""

    currently by default it is ""

    I am using Exchange Server 2007

    thank you

    Unfortunately that's not the way Exchange is designed - it can receive from multiple email addresses, but will only send from one "primary" address - the behaviour you are seeing.

    There are lots of hits about this, with some solutions that may or may not work, depending on a lot of things:

    The only sure way is to give the recipient multiple mailboxes and reply from the appropriate one
