EAP, AD domain and external domain names

Morning All,

Just a quick confirmation please....

Our internal AD is 'mydomain.com' and our public domain name is 'my_rebranded_domain.com'

I want to change the EAP (on Exchange 2007) to set everyones reply address as 'my_rebranded_domain.com'. While I'm doing this, I want to clear up the environment and remove the rubbish.

Can anyone confirm that I don't the NEED 'mydomain.com' in ANY address policy? I am free to remove this from Exchange, right?

Lacking in confidence before major changes this weekend :)

Everyone have a good day!

You don't _need_ it, you are quite correct but does everyone outside of your org know your new rebranded addresses?

Do any automated services that your users have subscribed to use the old address format?

What's the main rationale for getting rid of the original one other than a tidy up?

Tony,

Many thanks. I didn't want to confuse things with too much info, but....

We have several address policies in place as we have been renamed/rebranded/resurrected several times over the last decade. Previous admins have never cleared things out and our default policy has never been changed.

We will be keeping the old (sorry... most recent) addresses assigned to existing objects for the time being. But I will remove the policy that stamps this address onto objects automatically.

Of course, I won't be removing any accepted domains at this time.

Our business has dictated that they want to break any references to past company names that we may have. From our point of view, this will only happen when we build and migrate to a new domain. Planned for 1st qtr next year.

Thanks for quick reply. Have a great day!

Coopz

Thanks for the extra info - you'll be fine with what you want to do and good luck! Love company re-orgs/buyouts etc - they always add to the challenge :)

Should if you need any more help with anything and thanks for the points.
