I run a MS Server 2003 shop.  I use Go Daddy's total DNS control for external DNS.  I have my own DC and exchange server... My domain name is, say "abc.net".  I recently purchased another domain name "xyz.net" and want to relay email to an already existing account on my abc.net domain.

What steps are needed to set this up?  
In short, I want my exchange server also relay email for xyz.net domain.

1)  External DNS is already setup.
2)  What internal DNS steps must be taken on my DC?
3)  What steps must be taken on the exchange box to complete this?
4)  Will I have to create a sub domain on abc.net to include xyz.net?

Any feedback would be great.  I tried creating a new forward lookup zone on my DC, then created a another recipient policy on the Exchange server.  but I still can't recieve email from this new domain.  Funny thing is I'm not getting any bounce backs from public email accounts like hotmail.

And informative web URL's would also be helpful...

hi there

first of all.
do as you have done and added the mx records for the other domain to point to the exchange server.

create another RUS with the new domain and filter it to the users you want to have the aditional email address or just have the new address as the primary.

for users who you want to belong to both domains but send as the new domain email address, set this as their default email address.
