Guest -> How can I receive all messages to a domain? (11.Jun.2000 1:15:00 PM)

Hi. I need to set up a mailbox to receive messages sent to *any* user in an Internet domain. In other words, messages sent to "admin@mydomain.com" or "info@mydomain.com" or "dave@mydomain.com" should all be routed into the same Exchange mailbox. I don't want to set up separate users in that domain.

Apologies if this Q has been asked before but I have only just found this forum!

I have a same problem and still didn't find the solutions.
I am hosting multiple internet domains on my Exchange server. And I wonder is it even possible to setup the 'catch all' account?
Meaning one user gets all the mail sent to *@domain.

I've never heard of anyone wanting to do this -- and I'm not sure it can be done with Exchange. However, you may wish to look at your IMS connector's Address Space Tab. I *think* that it might be able to be done there, but I don't have a lab site to test at the moment (and my employers wouldn't be too happy with me if I messed up our production IMS)...

HTH,
Kenn

I have a similar problem. I would like one account (or maybe a server-side script) to intercept all messages formatted like number@mydomain.com.
Any idea how to do that ? ;o)

not allowed per RFC

can have non delverable mail forwarded to the email admin, but a Non deliverly report is still generated to the sender.

a kludge is to use sendmail to relay from sendmail.domain.com to domain.com
It remains as MX for the domains, when mail comes in it just aliases it to user@exchange.domain.com. For the adhoc addresses, the @domain.com virtualuser entry is aliased to mailsorter@exchange.domain.com.
Default reply-to is set to user@domain.com at the exchange side.

sendmail.domain.com is set as smarthost for exchange.domain.com so that mail
is not spam-bounced as coming from an SMTP server that is not the MX. This
makes email work just like we want, but adding/removing users is overly
tedious

This info was plagiarized from another BBS

Sirmo how did you setup your Exchange server to Host Multiple internet domains?

gmancilla,
To have exchange receive mail for multiple domain names, simply add them in the routing tab of IMS (names routed as inbound). My exchange server serves as a mail server for at least half a dozen domains this way.

You still have to manually add users with the @newdomain.com address, of course, and you have to put an MX record in the DNS records for each domain to point to your mail server, but it's a very straightforward procedure.

Cheers,
G

You can receive all INCOMING mail for any user in your domain, but not outgoing mail.

I have found the decision of the given problem!
Look at readme.htm at documentation for ServicePack2 for Exchange5.5 about "Message Journaling".

Mike,

Did you enter the username as :
DOMAIN/LOGIN_NAME/ALIAS ?

ex. : ODIT/MY_LOGIN/MY_ALIAS

This is the method you have to authorize yourself on the server using POP.
