Two company's merging - email worries
Posted on 2004-09-09
Tech info: Windows 2000 domain, Exchange 2000
We are merging with another company and so changing our company name and email addresses.
I have added the new addresses *@newcompany.com to the recipient policy on our exchange server which has updated AD with the new email addresses ready to go.
We are taking on board the smaller company who also run Exchange 2000. I have created mailboxes for them here and I need to make sure any email that gets sent to their old domain gets forwarded to the new one here. How can I configure their Exchange server to send all incoming email to our Exchange server?
Do I set their Exchange server up to forward their email to the new domain, or to the external IP address of our MailSweeper server? Whichever option it is, how do I do it?!
Then, how do I setup our Exchange server to accept it, or is this already taken care of via the recipient policy?
