My DNS MX in the outside world is ecu-waco.org. My server domain is ecumail.ecu-waco.org. How can I alias the server domain so mail to ecu-waco.org is received (rather than ecumaiol.ecu-waco.org)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to move from an SBS server 2003 exchange to a exchange 2010 installation in its own domain (had to be different from SBS domain). The outside address is mailclient@ecu-waco.org. How do I alias my @ecumail.ecu-waco.org to accept these addresses?

  • I'm not sure that I follow exactly but the reply address will be whichever one you have set as the primary in the email address policy.

  • Hi

    You need to add ecu-waco.org as an accepted domain an then add it to the mailboxes as a SMTP address using an email address policy.

  • Thank you Steve that works. Now is there a way to change the outbound address so replies go to the ecu-waco address as the sent address is mailuser@ecumail.ecu-waco.org and that will not work now as apparently changing the smtp address to ecu-waco (even though there is an asterick. on the hub email address) only receives.

  • Steve,

    Again, thank you very much, all is now well (except for the cutover....:) ) Since SBS does not allow any other type of domain etc, I found it necessary to place this Exchange (running on its on 2008 R2 server) in its own domain. I did not realize (not being an Exchange or even e-mail guru) all of the things the SBS did for me. However along with an excellent set-up guide (only half applicable but that's a start), heck I even delved into PowerShell scripts.

    As the majority of what Exchange is doing fits with the newer server software, and though even that I have to enter into active directory and then place a mailbox, with the addition of your advice it has worked well to this point. I have all XPPro workstations (I know but management doesn't want to spend the money on the applications which apparently run on XP quirks (through SAMBA)) so I will set the profile where they can look at their stuff on the old Exchange and use the new one for e-mail, eventually replacing the old one.
