Hi,

I have a new domain with xn-- string "xn--kompetensfrmedlingen-dbc.se" configured in our DNS.

Now I want to configure mailboxes in Exchange 2007 and my question is if the allowed domain namne should be configured with IDNA or by its real name in Exchange.

the allowed domain (i believe you mean accepted domain ) should be your actual domain name which is after @ in the exchange users email address

Hi

You need to have a MX record in your DNS for that domain(and pointing to your mail server), after this, just add the domain in you Exchange infrastructure to work with this new domain.

Okey so there will be no IDNA domain name at all in Active Directory or Exchange?

The real domain name is "kompetensförmedlingen.se" and the IDNA is "xn--kompetensfrmedlingen-dbc.se" but if I understand you its not needed at all in Exchange or the AD?

How about the UPN suffix for the domain?
Does the AD treat questions with or without IDNA?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

you just need to set up accepted domain and email address policy for kompetensförmedlingen.se. not the full IDNA domain name.

Also will need to create MX records on kompetensförmedlingen.se 's dns control panel to your Public IP of the exchagne server

as far as AD is concerned, it treats without IDNA if you create your local domain name as kompetensförmedlingen.se.

for e.g I have an internet domain name called abc.com. that doesn't actually mean that the AD i have should be part of abc.com. AD domain name can be yourcompany.local and can set up exchange server with abc.com

Perfect, then I got a clear picture.

The DNS and MX records are already there ;)

Hmm, I went on problem directly.

The accepted domain name kompetensförmedlingen.se returns error "- Invalid SMTP domain" in the guide.

sorry, My mistake. I've just checked your MX records and also tested in my LAB - and it requires xn--kompetensfrmedlingen-dbc.se in accepted domain. Not sure how the actual email address will work. you can probably create an email address policy that gives all users user@kompetensförmedlingen.se address and test it. Not much info out and about, about this.
