Two Companies - User Emails Problem - 14.Dec.2004 10:50:00 PM

Hi there!

I am using SBS 2003 to administer 2 companies (in one building, on the same LAN).

All of these user accounts are situated in the default OU.

What I need to do is set the email addresses to the correct company domain, depending on which company the staff work for.

During the installation of SBS, the default domain was set up, call it company1.com, and each user has this as default. I have then created two POP3 Connectors to the different company ISPĂs. Manually I have gone through all the user accounts who work for the second company and renamed the default address to the new one ű username@company2.com, removing any entries to do with company1.com.

The issue I am having now is whenever I send a test email to a company2 email address (from outside the network ű i.e. from a hotmail account) I get a postmaster error email sent back and it states the email address with company1 as itĂs domain. Everything works fine when I send an email to a company1 user, and all gets delivered to their exchange account.

I definitely think my ˘manual change÷ is what is causing the problems, but am unsure on what to actually do, e.g create a separate OU for company2?

Kind Regards

Check following two things.

1) MX record for company2.com. in this case it may be okay.

2) In Exchange manager, under recipientient Policies to to properties of "Default Policies" and under "email address policy" you have company2.com defined.
