Configuring multiple E-mail domains in exchange 2010

We can configure Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 to accept e-mail for more than one SMTP domains. In this article I will show you how to configure the accepted domains and how to create the new email address policy for the new e-mail domain

Scenarios:-

  • Your Company has different independent business units and the each of them need different e-mail domains; company management doesn’t want to spend money for this.
  • You Providing the email hosting service and have to accept e-mail for more than one SMTP domain name

Prerequisites

  • A public DNS MX resource record is required for each SMTP domain for which you accept e-mail from the Internet. Each MX record should resolve to the Internet-facing server that receives e-mail for your organization.
  • Send and Receive connectors should be configured, so that the Exchange organization can send e-mail to and receive e-mail from the Internet.

There are two steps to configure exchange 2010 to accept e-mail for more than one SMTP domains. The initial step is configuring the accepted domain and the second one is create or modify the email policy.
