a customer has bought a domainname with an ø in it (lets call it "dø") and would like to send and recieve mails on this domain.
besides the obvious potential compatability issues, is there any way to configure Exchange 2007 to accept scandinavian characters in domainname?
When i try to set up a new domain in "Organization Configuration => Hub Transport => Accepted domains", I get the following error:
X  Some controls are not valid
    -invalid SMTP domain

Back in exchange 2003, we where able to set up this with some registry hacks, but those are not working here.
It's a Small Business 2008 Server with Exchange 2007

Any input would be appriciated :)
