Quick question about exchange 2003, if I may...

I don't know if this is a silly question or not, but here it goes: If you host multiple domains on a Windows 2003 server with IIS on a limited number of IPs, is it possible to use Exchange 2003 a a mail solution? Like have bob@dom1.com, bill@dom2.com, etc.?

I don't know if this makes sense, but I am currently testing currently Kerio Mail Server on this test box, and I would like to know if it is possible to use X2003 instead of it. Can you offer pop and smtp and IMAP for multiple domains with X2003? There are only four test domains on this server and all four are at The name server is at, pop is tat, IMAP is at DNS and IIS and Exchange would all be on one machine.

Thanks, and sorry if this is a dumb question.

OK, I looked everywhere, and I just can;t seem to make any headway. I have set up two VM machines (I'll call them NS1 and NS2), NS1 running DNS on and hosting domains on Then NS2 is set up as a secondary DNS on and IMAP on, POP on and SMTP on

On NS1 I have setup dom0.com, dom1.com, dom2.com, and dom3.com inside IIS (the default web site is dam0.com). All zones transfer, no errors, all's OK.

On NS2, I've set up X2003 and it asked me to install NNTP, SMTP, and IIS. I did all that. Now how do I add bob@dom1.com and bill@dom2.com inside X2003 on NS2? I set up the connectors, I have a default SMTP , POP3, IMAP4 servers. I have set up a new user "test" and I can set pick up mail for test@dom0.com. And that's where it stops for me. I don't know where to go read up on how to move on from there. I want to set up test@dom1.com, etc. When I tried to set up a new SMTP virtual server, ti said I have to use a unique IP or port. But all sites are running on

Does any of this make sense?

Yeah, I have. I just don't understand where I add the users for "contoso.com".  Crap. Oh well, thanks, I'll just wait...

Oh well... I just figured this one out by myself.
