How to setup outlook to receive emails from 2 different domains?

We are using MS Exchange Server and our MS outlook is setup to receive emails from old domain. Now we have another domain and we would like to setup that domain on same Exchange Server. Is there a way we can do it without having to forward emails from new domain to old domain?

I am buying new domain mostly for email purposes. I will not be hosting it anywhere at least at this point. I am not an very familiar with setting up emails on outlook especially when it comes to another domain. Can you provide more details? Really appreciate it.
Coolie Sheppard

So you haven't even bought the domains yet?  And who is going to host your domain, your ISP?

Yes my isp will be hosting my domain

Have them setup both the domains you have and you will be able to receive email from all those domains.


Or..


Have them point the MX record towards your Exchange server and you can add both those domains in your receipient policy.

I mis-typed earlier.  Here's the case:
1.  We have purchased the domain and we have a separate public IP address associated with it.
2.  Our ISP has pointed this address to our servers.
3.  We want to keep the two domains completely separate and distinct - no association at all.
4.  The new domain is used for e-mail purposes only.
5.  We want to be able to read e-mail received via the new domain (admin@new.com) in Outlook.

IS someone able to provide me with step-by-step instructions given this new information?
Thanks.

Go to your Exchange server.


Go to Start > Administrative Tools > DNS


Select Forward Lookup Zones.  Right click and select New Zone


Follow the Wizard. Name the domain something like mail.yourNewdomain.com


Point the IP address to your Exchange server (If you have an public IP address for your Exchange server, use the public IP address, not the private)


Associate a PTR record with it.  If it doesn't ask for that, create a new zone as well in the "Reverse Lookup Zones'


In the zone you just created, go in there and create (by right clicking) an A (host) record.  This record will have the IP address of your Exchange server (public IP address)

Now create an MX record in the same place you created the A record.  Have the MX record point to the A record you just created.


Go to Exchange System Manager

Expand Recipients  > Recipient Policies


Go to the properties of your Default Policy and under the E-Mail Addresses tab, select new.  Add the new SMTP domain but add it as:  @YourNewdomain.com


Hit OK.
