Exchange 2007 add a second domain
Posted on 2007-07-31
I nedd to have some changes in my Exchange 2007.
First i need to change my emails domain name.
I have in Exchange a domain xpto_old.com and i want to change to xpto_new.com. I think i do not need to change my AD domain to have this. I just need to add the second domain and use for all users.
If is something like the Exchange 2000, in Exchange 2007 is acepted domain, add the new domain. After in the E-mail Addres policies i add this new domain to add a xpto_new.com to all users.
Is this ok?
I have made this before in Exchange 2000, but not on the 2007.
I will leave the old domain about a month or two before delete.
I think this is the best way to perform this. Or is best to change the internal domain name(i don't like this)?
My second issue is adding a second(or third) domain just to work with 4 or 5 accounts.
To add this is similar to my first issue, but since this a domain just for some users, and not a AD domain, what is the best way to create this accounts? I do not want create users just to use these account. I need that some 4 or 5 local users, use this new accounts.
So will i create a account without a user, and add this to a local user?
I need to do this in a good way that other administrator need to know who use this accounts, and easy to find or manage.
