Hi - I expect this is easy, but I can't figure it out.

SBS2003 Exch 2003 SP1

This server collects mail for domainA.co.uk via POP3 Connector. domain substitution ensures mail is delivered to the correct mailboxes. [fred@domainA.co.uk is delivered via domain substitution to fred@domainB.locallan]. The customer also wants mails sent to domainB.co.uk and collected via POP3 Connector to be delivered by domain substitution to the mailboxes.

I've tried adding another smtp entry to the default recipient policy. I've also tried adding a whole extra recipient policy for this smtp. Neither has worked.

How can I achieve what is required?

One sub-question - the default address is domainB.locallan . Is this correct?

Thanks

It's easy if you'll quit using the POP3 connector which is only there to assist in getting you to use REAL email via SMTP.  

Follow the steps at http://sbsurl.com/pop2smtp for that.

Then, follow the steps here to host multiple domains:  http://seanda.blogspot.com/2004/10/hosting-multiple-domains-on-sbs-2003.html

Thanks Techsoeasy:

Can't use the SMTP route at present because not all the mail accounts are handled via the POP3 Connector. For some the mail is retrieved directly by applications and the customer doesn't have the resources currently to change the applications.

When next in the customer premises I will try the multiple domains suggestion.

Can you please clarify what you mean that some mail is retrieved directly by applications?  Are these applications on the SBS?  Within the LAN?  It doesn't make sense to me unless you provide an example of what is happening here.

The default account should NOT be domainB.locallan.  This indicates that Email was not configured using the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW -- which is linked as Connect to the Internet in the Server Management Console > Internet and Email) which is a required step in SBS.  Please run that wizard to configure the FIRST email domain name (which I would set as domainB.co.uk since the local LAN has that name... just for consistency sake... it really doesn't matter).  

A visual how-to is here:  http://sbsurl.com/ceicw and a full networking overview for SBS is at http://sbsurl.com/msicw

Then, for the second domain name, you would follow the steps in the blog post linked above, and then you must configure retrieval for that domain's addresses in the POP3 Connection Manager.  Please note that you must use different user names for each domain, ie, fred@domainA.co.uk and fredB@domainB.co.uk, in order for this to work properly.
