Hi all,

need a desperate advise about my scenario below?

The scenario is:

We have a company called BLAH.COM located in ABCITY. Few of company BLAH employees are located in DEFCITY. These people are sitting at company CRAZY.COM(exchange, active directory)
Current Email setup is i created a user at XXX@BLAH.COM and forward the emails to XXX@CRAZY.COM and i setup an email alias called XXX@BLAH.COM attached to XXX@CRAZY.COM so that when this user sends email it will send it as XXX@BLAH.COM

I want to scrap this setting as it drives me mental. What is the best way for these employees to connect to BLAH.COM exchange and belong to BLAH active directory and access company BLAH files? These people are desktop users and connected to BLAH LAN to access internet.
any advise please?? less bandwidth needed even better

I supposed we can do VPN client but is there other seamless way?


please please

one way is to setup a domain trust between blah.com and crazy.com and the users might be able to login with user@blah.com into the crazy.com workstation.
The straight forward is to use a single AD domain through out.

Have you considered setting up their clients to just do RPC over HTTP to your exchange server?

Hi all,

For outlook has to be outlook client not OWA.

I thought about doing trust relationship. is that the only way?

Am i going to have a problem doing a trust relationship for windows 2003 enterprise r2 with sbs 2011 standard?
