If... you setup a new corporate email account, must you also create a corresponding domain user account? if yes, why is that? if not, how can people see the email coming in from another domain account? Which is more common, setup a new domain account for each new mailbox, or to find a way of people to be able to view/manage such accounts from another domain account?

That's weird as our guys emails end in .com yet our ad domain ends in .net

Commented:
It's standard practice to have separate internal domain name and external email domain name. They both link to AD though.
You should buy the .net and do nothing with it so nobody else can use it as well, ideally. The .net part should never leave your company's perimeter network.

Hello

IT depends on the setup been made on recipient Policies on Exchange system Manager if you are using Exchange 2003 server.

In Recipient Policies you cacn define whatever you want.

suppose in recipient policies it is defined as that all new users mailbox when created then it should allocate as username@yourcompanytdomainname.net or .co.uk or .com

or whatever you want.
