Hi ibmas4002,

You do this with a "Recipient Policy"
From MS knowledgebase article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q268838
Start Exchange Systems Manager.
Click to expand the Recipients container.
Click Recipient Policies.
Open the properties of the appropriate policy that is displayed in the right pane.
Click the E-Mail Addresses tab, and then add any additional Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) addresses that you want the Exchange-based computer to host.

More info is available at : http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF010.html

Hope that this helps.

Dear  scampgb

I have added it , and i have created the dns zone for it.

But still i can not receive external emails to this address.

Do you have any users that have the address you're sending to as one of their Email Addresses in ADUC?

What error mesage do you get back when you try to send an email to the address?

Also, take a look at www.dnsreport.com and test the new domain name to make sure that the MX record is correctly pointing to your mail server.

when im trying the dnsreport im getting this error

ERROR: The parent servers say that the domain alsayertest.com does not exist.]


Rows with a FAIL indicate a problem that in most cases really should be fixed.
Rows with a WARN indicate a possible minor problem, which often is not worth pursuing.

Note that all information is accessed in real-time (except where noted), so this is the freshest information about your domain

i added the Mx in my external and internal dns. what else i have to do??

"ERROR: The parent servers say that the domain alsayertest.com does not exist." is a serious error.

I've just done a WHOIS on alsayertest.com, and it doesn't seem to be registered.

Is this the correct domain name?
If you only registered it within the past 24-48 hours, it's probably not been fully set up yet.

You will need to contact the organisation that you registered the domain name with to get this resolved.
