I'm setting up a new SBS 2003 server with the domain name mydomain.co.uk.

I want to receive emails for the companies four regd domains:

mydomain.co.uk
my-domain.co.uk
mydomain.com
my-domain.com

I thought I only needed to go into System Manager > Recipients > Recipient Policies and add the other 3 domains. However, it still only receives emails for the main domain.

Thanks for any ideas.

Mike

when you add a new domain in the recipient policy, there is a small checkbox which also needs to be checked
it is called This Exchange Organization is responsible for all mail delivery to the address.

is it checked for all the domains?
