  • migrate to new company

    Company A bought company B. There is a need that all the users from Company B will have an email of comapny-a.com but will continue to use thier own domain.

    What is the best method to do so?

    the environments are similar - 2008 domain and forest, exchange 2010.

    Thanks

    You can create user accounts and mailboxes in company B for them that they can use for email or you can create linked mailboxes in company B that they can use for email. In either case you'll add the company A domain to your Accepted Domains and E-mail Address Policy.

      All the users of company B use exchange on company B domain. So is there a way where they will continue and use thier own mailboxes but the mail address will change? I understand that linked mailboxes are used in an exchange resource forest and that there is one mailbox per user.

        There is no particular reason you could not create a split domain so Company B handles some of Company A's addresses - the A server would forward emails to B:
        https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ex...O4HY8geCsYGYBQ

        Alternatively create mailboxes in A for B users and forward to their Company B address (replies would then come from B)
