Adding another domain under a SBS 2003 Exchange Server

I want to add an additional email domain to Exchange without it being automatically populated on everyone elses account. I've added it to the Recipient Policy but not ticked the box under the "Generator rules" section. I've also added the domain into my own AD account.

When I try to send an email to the email address on my AD account for this new domain, it returns with:

<account>@<domain> on 06/04/2007 12:34
  You do not have permission to send to this recipient. For assistance, contact your system administrator.
  <<testdomain> #5.7.1 smtp;550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for <account>@<domain>>

Any ideas what's not been configured right, or how to get around this issue without ticking the box?

when you configure the new smtp domain in a recipient policy there is a checkbox to select "This Exchange Organization is responsible for all mail delivery to this address". it should be checked.
also if you don't want this policy to apply this new email address to all the users, you can leave the filter blank.

Yep, I've selected that checkbox, but the same problem occurs.

Just to be sure, I've redone the entire process, force updated RUS and so on. Same problem. Any ideas?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Just had a look. I sent 4 emails, 2 to my account that I know works and 2 to the new domain email address. I can only see tracking info for the account that works, not the new domain!

take out the new smtp domain from the policy
create a new email policy for this domain
name is accordingly
leave the filter blank (don't click on modify)
when you add the new smtp domain name put a check in the box under generation rules window
highlight the new smtp domain policy and put a check against "This Exchange Organization is responsible for all mail delivery to this address".

OK, I see where I need to know, but by clicking the box wouldn't that mean the RUS pushes out the new domain to all other users' accounts?

no, if the filter is empty it will not stamp any user with the new address
since the existing policy already has a filter defined, don't add this new smtp domain in that as it will stamp it on all the objects that match the filter
