Problems applying secondary SMTP domain policy and applying to domain users alias's on Exchange 2007 Enterprise Server SP1
Posted on 2009-06-30
We are running Exchange Enterprise 2007 server SP1 security update 8 and are preparing to change our domain name.
I want to be able to add a second SMTP domain for my Exchange server to listen for and have it assigned to my users.
I have followed the steps found in this forum to create the new SMTP domain.
1. Create an accepted domain and set the type to Authoritative, but not as Default.
2. Create E-mail Address Policy. First tried "All recipients types" .
Default on conditions.
Added the accepted domain created earlier.
Left the check box for E-mail address local part - Use Alias.
Watched as the process ran and appeared to apply to all users in my domain.
Changed the priority to 2 and applied the policy.
Watched as this process ran and it too appeared to apply to all of my users.
When I opened sample user properties -> E-Mail Addresses, I did not see the new accepted domain or email policy applied to the user's accounts. Just the one from the "Default" policy.
When I run the Exchange shell command, Get-AcceptedDomain, I can see the newly created domain. I can see it as Authoritative and the default set to False.
Most users are set to automatically update e-mail addresses based on e-mail address policy.
I added the new domain to listen to in the "Default" policy and applied it to all of my users. Still unable to see the new policy added to the user accounts.
I removed the new policy and accepted domain and retried the process with no luck.
I can manually add the SMTP to individual accounts with out problems (and email internally between the two different domains), but cannot get the policy to apply for all users in my domain at one time.
