Exchange Server 2003 Name Issue - Domain.local
Posted on 2006-06-14
I’m trying to resolve an exchange 2003 naming issue, but was not after to find a solution after research everywhere.
This is what happens, when setting up email account for exchange server.
Under Outlook 2003 -> Email account -> Exchange Server Settings:
If we enter “exchange.domain.com or IP address for the exchange server” -> Click check name, it will find the user account. However, the Exchange name will automatically change to “exchange.domain.local”.
We would like to use either “exchange.domain.com” or “IP address” BUT “exchange.domain.local” for a group of users. But, it just keep changing it back.
Below is some info about our environment
Server name is: exchange 2003 SP1
DC is: Windows 2003
Domain is: domain.local
Exchange server is a member of “domain.local” domain.
OWA and exchange are in the same server.
DNS: exchange.domain.com (DNS should setup correctly)
POP3 and OWA users can use either exchange.domain.com or IP address without problem.
Thank you in advance for all the help.
