Exchange 2000 - routing to different domains

We recently migrated from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000.  When we were on the Exchange 5.5 server we could give our users multiple @domain.com addresses.  For example, user1 could be reached at several different e-mail addresses - user1@domain1.com, user1@dom1.com, user1@domn1.com.  We have all of the domain names registered and configured in DNS, and all of the users were configured with three different SMTP addresses.  On the 5.5 server, we had the routing tab of the IMS connector configured to route domain1.com, dom1.com and domn1.com to <inbound>.  I cannot find where I can route these domains to <inbound> on the 2000 server.  Anybody have any ideas?

I believe if you go to global settings\internet message formats and add more domains there it should work. I'm not 100% sure though, let me know if you try it and if it works.

I don't see anyplace to put additional domains there...
just right click on internet message formats and go to new\domain.
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

That is done in the Recipients Policy container.
Expand the Recipients container and then select Recipients Policies. Right click the Default Policy and open the properties. Click the E-mail address tab and add a new entry. Add all your registered domains here.

I added this to the recipient policy.  This may be the correct answer, but it is not working...  There are two recipient policies, one called DC which is set to Highest and one called Default which is set to lowest.  I can add the other domains to the Default but not to the DC policy.  I think this policy is coming from the Exchange 5.5 server.  It's set to generate four addresses (and only one SMTP address) and it won't let me add any others.  I am unable to delete this policy either.  Can I add the other domains to some recipient policy on the Exchange 5.5 side and have it replicate to 2000?  I don't see any way to add the other domains to this policy, or to make a recipient policy with a higher priority than this one.  
No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
