Removing a domain name from Exchange server
Posted on 2006-03-23
We have an Exchange 2003 email server running three email domain names, eg:
We have moved domain3.com to a new server (external/internet based now). However, when users on domain1.com or domain2.com try to send email to domain3.com, it bounced back saying the recipient is unknown, eg:
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
Sent: 23/03/2006 07:59
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
firstname.lastname@example.org on 23/03/2006 07:59
The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to. Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address.
The email sent to domain3.com is not leaving the exchange server (we are monitoring at gateway level). How can we remove all traces of the domain3.com from our current exchange server, therefore forcing the email "out" of the gateway?
On Exchange 5.5, to remove a domain name, you simply go to site > configuration > site addressing > and remove the email domain name from there.
How would I remove domain3.com from my Exchange 2003 server?
Urgent, hence 500 points.
