My client has a domain (domain1.com) using SBS2003.  All is fine!  However they have another (domain2) and want to be able to send and receive mail using this one aswell.  Receiving is easy but how do you set up the second domain and in Outlook allow them to select which account they want to use to send a particular email?  I know if you have pop accvounts locally you can choose which account to send from in Outlook but how does this work with Exchange and setting it up?

Hi Powerhousecomputing,

There is no simple way to do this,

You either need to use "dummy" pop3 accounts with fake inbound server details but the exchange server as the SMTP server (that way, you will have the accounts button you are talking about) - or, you need to use a 3rd party product.

Such as, IvaSoft's choosefrom -> http://www.ivasoft.biz/choosefrom.shtml

Hope that helps,

Exchange lets you pick ONE default smtp address for each user. This DEFAULT address is the address that will be shown as the sender's address.  You cannot pick and choose who you send as like this.  For recieving, run the Configure E-Mail and Internet Connection Wizard and just add the other SMTP domain.

See this article for configuring multiple domains in Exchange:  http://seanda.blogspot.com/2004/10/hosting-multiple-domains-on-sbs-2003.html

Then, as red suggested, I use dummy POP3 accounts in Outlook to allow for the selection of domains to send with.  You just create a POP3 account with a fake inbound server, and then designate your SBS as the outbound.  It works just great.

P. S.  Any message received on a specific domain will automatically be replied to on the same domain.

I used the info in this article, http://seanda.blogspot.com/2004/10/hosting-multiple-domains-on-sbs-2003.html, and everything works great.  I couldn't be more pleased.

http://www.ivasoft.biz/choosefrom.shtml doesn't seem to work although the solution is perfect - do you know of any other 3rd parties?

Email IvaSoft with a link to this question - he is an EE member and will help.

Failing that, here is a similar Q where he was involved, which seems relevant.

The POP3 accounts, while inelegant, will work for you

His email address is on his website,

http://www.ivasoft.biz - bottom right hand corner

" webmaster @ his domain " should go to him

Review the above Q though, it may save you an email

I set up a fake pop accoujnt and disabled receiving mail.  As soon as I try to send it bounces back say it was unable to relay!

I have solved it - I needed to authenticate.

Thanks.
