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?

Yes, it was ticked (by default) when each domain was added.
