How to add another domain in Exchange 2003 only to one OU

Hi,

I have a customer, which is devided into two logical units. They work together, they have everything in common, only their type of work is different. Also server room and 2 servers are common.
Now, they have been configured in Exchange 2003 server under common domain, let's say FirstDomain.com. After few years, they asked me if SecondDomain.com could be added to their Exchange. I said of course...
...but then they wanted to apply the SecondDomain.com only to on Organizational Unit, not whole company. But this OU has 400 usernames!

Is there any way to edit SMTP properties for users on OU containers level? I really do not want to eddit 400 users manually. (what needs to be done: add SecondDomain.com to Exchange, then under user's Exchange Properties add SMTP: username@SecondDomain.com and mark it primary, while still leaving username@FirstDomain.com as valid SMTP for this user)

If you want to add a secondary SMTP to only users of an OU and make it primary, you'll probably need to use VBScript.  Let me see what I can whip together.

Thinking again after reading your two answers... I think it would go with Recipients Policy combined with proper LDAP query. But, on the third thought - I would need to make @FirstDomain.com SMTP address Primary for OLD part of company, and Secondary for NEW part, while adding additional domain for NEW part as Primary SMTP.
Is Recipient Policy able to do such a thing with LDAP queries?
I have configured Recipient Policies in many different ways, it all depends on what you want applying. Put your default one at the bottom (last one to be processed) and the others (that have LDAP filters set) further up. That way wne an acocubnt is created the Recipient Update Service will process the policies in the correct order you want applying i.e. it will check for group memebership first and apply the policy, if the user is not a member of a group it will process the last one.

We have it configured for one part of the business who need their own e-mail address as primiary and no others, another one where they need two cpmay e-mail addresees e.g. user1@company1.com and user2@company2.com.

You can have any combination you want.
