Hello,

if your organization is called xyz.com and the external is abc.com, if you create for this external user an internal account @xyz.com and you manually added @abc.com he will not be able to receive mails on the @abc.com the one in your organization as all the MX records are pointing to the real abc.com let's say he can do a forwarder from abc.com to xyz.com, we still have the problem of sending, sending an e-mail from xyz.com IP but with abc.com in the from field will be probably considered as spam.

The best way for him is to have 2 account is 2 different organizations and open them both in outlook, so he can send and receive from the same outlook but he will still have 2 usernames and 2 password and 2 profiles, unless he can use 1 account for sending and then he can forward one account to the other.

If you are happy with that I can send you step by step, if you would like to ask some questions, let's agree on the outlines and then we can go throw the step by step one.

Thank you.
