I have Exchange 2003 that receives mail for 2 domains. I will use dom1 and dom2 as the domain names. When I send mail from outside to info@dom1 it will go to info mailbox. But what about if I want separate mail send to info@dom1 and info@dom2. Is that possible?

You will need to create a second mailbox with a separate domain.

info-domain2

for example

Once the mailbox has been created, remove the info@domain2 email address from the first mailbox and apply it to the second mailbox.

I dont understand the info-domain2  What is that is it mailbox name... email address.

Is this your idea:

1) first mailbox name     "info" email address info@dom1
2)second mailbox name "info2"email address info@dom2

Is it what you are saying. In that case the email addres of the mailbox is determinig what mail it will receive.??

It doesn't matter what the second mailbox name is - it just cannot be the same as the existing mailbox.

Exchange will use the information from the account when setting the initial email addresses. However you don't have stick with what Exchange sets as the email addresses.

The email address of the mailbox is the only way that the email is controlled with regards to inbound external email. However you may want to review the naming of both mailboxes for their appearance in the Global Address List - which is why I used info-domain2 in my example.
