exchange 2003 multiple email domains but not for everyone

Ok i understand how to have exchange receive emails for multiple domains as per
http://www.petri.co.il/configure_exchange_2000_2003_to_receive_email_for_other_domains.htm

but what i'd like to do. is add the new domains but only have certain people be able to receive email for the domain and not be username@newdomain.com

right now i have the filter set to just apply to one user but that one user gets the username@newdomain.com as well as my original domain.


can i have a user with just the default domain (username@defaultdomain.com) and receive an email of say (higuys@newdomain.com) and NOT include (username@newdomain.com)?

hopefully this makes sense.

Set each recipient policy to search for a field (I use company name) and enter the domain name appropriate to the filter in the properties of the user.

This way only if they match the filter will they receive that email address

Deeburp,

it is possible. However it asks for some planning.
In Exchange 2003, that is controlled using Recipient Policy.

Basically it comes to this: you need to setup an Recipient Policy per domain/group that you want to receive mails for.

Eg.

Policy 1
Allow domain1.com for group/users x,y,z

Policy 2
Allow domain2.com for group/users a,b,c

Policy 3
....


And so on. That should do the trick for you. It's very important that you make your filters right. Because, by what I understood, you're really trying to limit it.

Grts,

Michael

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

right but even with these separate policies you mention. won't i still have users receiving the mailnick@newdomain.com?

i still want all users to have mailnick@defaultdomain.com

but i want just a select few to be able to have unique emails like goobers@newdomain.com or welovebeets@newdomain.com

and those select few would not receive mailnick@newdomain.com

As long as you have to correct filters in place this should be easily achievable.

Just don't apply a filter to the default domain and only apply a filter and format for the address to the second policy.
