Two Mail Servers in different places for one domain

Hello,

I have a question , here is the detail :

My company , which has a domain mycompany.com would like to have multiple office around the world. And they want to have a mail server per country , but having the same domain name for the email.
Example :

Main office Server1 with all the french people mailbox

Italian office Server 2 with all the italian people mailbox

but all have to have myname@mycompany.com

Is it possible ?

Thanks in advance

Yes, no problem
the problem in inbound mail that comes, most probably it will come to a single location where it will be distributed to remote offices.

Hi there,

as busbar said, it is perfectly possible to do so. However; there are some design-constraints that you'll have to keep in mind.

1. If you use Active Directory sites to delineate your physical sites, each one of them should have a CAS and HT server installed if you have a local MB-server.
2. Your emails will be 'entering' your organisation at one point (either one of the countries); they will be redirected to the correct MB-server from there.

The accepted domains in Exchange (e.g. mycompany.com) will automatically be available to all of your users.

Grts,

Michael

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

If what you are planning is to having one Exchange enterprise with all these location connected to a private VPN then yes it can be done easily.

However if you are planning to have totally separate servers in separate forests with more than 2 servers it is not that easy to implement

First of all , thanks to your answer.

Then ,  the things is that at the moment, whe have a DC with Exchange for the French office , and we will not implement any VPN between the antenna , because of legacy.

So we will try to put an other mail server (maybe exchange or othe) on the other offices.  Will it be possible to do that and also , the question is , will it be possible for each office to manage their own mail address like that for any creation/deletion they will not have to ask to the french office .

Since you will have totally separate offices with no vpn or anything in common it will be easy for you to have separate mail servers each managing its own users however to make them all interchange emails and receive external emails all of them @samedomain.com it is not easy to do with more than 2 branches

mvicidomini,

if you don't want too much hassle, you really need a VPN between both sites. If you don't have that, it's very difficult to share a common namespace between both offices (because you'll have 2 points of entry). So if that really is an issue; I'd advice you to take a look at some cloud-based solutions like e.g. BPOS/Office 365

Greets,

Michael

just one more thought, if you want to split your users across 2 locations you can achieve what you want without any problems even if they are totally separate, it is when you start talking abotu more than 2 locations that it gets tricky

It will be just between two locations :

1 server for France

1 server for the International part.

But how can i do that ?

Thx
