How to "tell" an Exchange 2003 server to route for an old 5.5 domain address as well as new.

I have built a new Exchange 2003 server in a new domain, replacing an Exchange 5.5 server in a different domain.
I need this Exchange 2003 server to route incoming mail, using the old 5.5 address, for
a handfull of  users.
How do i tell the Exchange 2003 server that it should route  the new email address for all users
and also route  the old email for only a few users ?
(I do not want to generate the old email address for new users on the Exch 2003 server
that were never on the old 5.5)

A user with a previous 5.5 mailbox should get his/her mail in his/her 2003 mailbox via the 5.5 email address. I trust i will have to add the 5.5 email address as a second address in the 2003 mailbox email record and repoint the MX DNS record to the 2003 email server vice the 5.5 email server. Is there anything else i need to do to make the 2003 email server handle both incoming addresses ?

you will also need to create a create a new recipient policy with a BLANK filter and add the 5.5 smtp domain in it with the checkbox "exchange will accept email for this domain" checked
once the policy has been created, add the smtp address to the user's email address tab after you have made the change that i have mentioned that the changes that you have mentioned in your last post

this should work for you

Actually, no change nor reference to the legacy W2K Exchange 5.5 email was required in the
recipient policy of Exchange 2003.  Adding the old email address as an additional email
address in the user's Exchange 2003 email record  and changing the DNS MX
record is all it took to do the job.

thanks
