  • Hi,

    With your description, user accounts reside in one forest (known as a user account forest) while the Microsoft Exchange is deployed in a separate forest (known as a resource forest).

    In this scenario, the Outlook client contacts Active Directory in the user account forest to locate the URL for the Autodiscover service. But the service is hosted in the resource forest, so we must update Active Directory in the user account forest to include the information that Active Directory requires to enable the client to access the resource forest.

    To do this, we must extend the schema in the user forest by using ADSI Edit, and then run the Export-AutodiscoverConfig cmdlet in the resource forest that contains the Client Access servers that provide the Autodiscover service against the target forests.

    For detailed information, you can see How to Configure the Autodiscover Service When You Use Multiple Forests in the following article:

    Hope it can help you.

    Thanks

  • You mean you have more accepted domain in you organization right?
    for my understanding , you have to create accepted domain for each domain.
    and using email policy for mapping SMTP domain for each uses domain.

    and that's it. Don't worry about autodiscover's name from outside.
    Because the endpoint is all the same autodiscover virtual directory.
