Wildcard in Send Connector

Running Exchange 2007 SP2.

I have a Send Connector (SC) where the Address Space is *.partner.com

Could someone confirm - does this mean that partner.com is actually included in this Send Connector? I'm not sure because the Address Space in the SC is *.partner.com (emphasis on the *. before Partner), indicating that division1.partner.com, division2.partner.com etc domains were part of the SC, but not actually just partner.com, since there is a period after the wildcard?

Hope this question makes sense :)

If I did want to have a SC for any child domain of partner.com and also partner.com itself, does anyone know what the syntax would be?

Yes it is, the *.x.com just mean any subdomain will be included for the connector.

The *.partner.com cover the root domain as well, so it already cover the partner.com domain as well.

Hi

Yep, I know the subdomain's of partner.com are included in the SC, but I was wondering if partner.com itself actually was?

For example:

the SC Address Space is *.partner.com

So I understand that emails to joe@division1.partner.com, harry@division1.partner.com, john@division3.partner.com etc will be sent to the SC.

But what about emails to george@partner.com? Is address@partner.com included in the SC?

Yes those are included.

Partner.com as the root domain the *. will make the root domain included.

So address@partner.com will included in that particular SC.

Without the *.partner.com if you change it to .partner.com without "*" then it will not cover the subdomain (harry@division1.partner.com).  

So the *. use to include everything + the root domain while take it off will take off the subdomain. from SC.

Thanks!

Out of interest, is there a way to have the child domains, but not the root domain?

yes, you can do abc.partner.com only and make sure not using the *.abc.partner.com which will allow you to send to harry@abc.partner.com via the SC.

To confirm, I *do* want the child domains, but not the root domain.

Yes, if you only do the child domains, don't do the wildcard;

If you want the root domain included, use the wildcard.
