Two Domains, one Server, two different hosting companies
Posted on 2006-05-26
Right, this is a bit complicated.
well either that or ill make it complicated by talking rubbish..
anyhow Our company has two email domains at present.
comp2.co.uk is based on our current Exchange 2003 server.
the ISP Demon.net look after the domain names , mx records etc.
They recieve the mail, then we pick it up from their servers via a 3rd party hardbox (Inty Exoserver) and drop it into our exchange server (pop3 multiheader drop ?)
This works fine for us, and we have a backup if our server goes down (i think :P)
Comp1.com is hosted by MCI, and is just a pop3 service.
We have local and remote laptop users connecting via pop3 to download their emails.
We do have some users who have theres picked up by the Inty Exoserver and forwarded to their comp2.co.uk address.
We really want to move away from MCI, and have all the mail based on the exchange server.. all backed up , got control of different email address make ups etc.
The A.D/Exchange server look after comp2.co.uk mailboxes, but it has contacts set up with smtp addresses of comp1.com, so that are comp2 users have a full address list.
Whats the best way of getting both comp1 and comp2 on the same server.
and eventually defaulting to a domain of comp1.com rather than comp2.co.uk./
ive confused my self more than enuff, any questions ill try and answer the best i can :( as theres bound to be a few before a result
