Adding a secondary domain for specific users

Hi,

We have two primary domains that are business related and all users in the organisation have an email address for, e.g. Bob has email addresses bob@domain1.com and bob@domain2.com.  This has been set up in the default recipient policy and works fine.

However, I have purchased another domain name that is being used purely as a test project.  I have set the MX record to point mail sent to this address to our Exchange Box.

I plan to assign SMTP addresses from the new test domain to specific users via AD e.g. bob@testdomain.dom.  How do I set the recipient policies so that new users are not automatically generated an email on the test domain when added to AD?

In summary, I want our exchange server to be responsible for handling @testdomain emails - but only for specifically chosen users to have an address on this domain?

Thanks

There are a number of ways of doing this.

1. Add the domain to the default recipient policy. This will add it to all users.
2. Create a new recipient policy, but do not set a filter. Then add the domain to the relevant user accounts manually.
3. As above, but set a filter.

Depending on the number of users, the last two will probably be what you want to do. I tend to the second one unless I am dealing with a large number of users. It is far easier to deploy than creating groups and the filter, then testing it and generally playing around to get it to work as expected.
