Hi folks. I am migrating mail for a small company from hosted pop accounts to their own new internal Exchange 2010 box.
Their mail accounts are in the format firstname.lastname@example.org. Their domain (for some reason known only to whoever configured it whos long gone) has a sub domain so its abc.companyname.com. As they of course want to keep the same email addresses I have configured the email address policy to match the existing format, so far so good.
Their ISP is making the MX change this evening for me to point to mail.companyname.com and their public IP here (router is configured)
I have configured a send connector to sned mail out via their broadband providers smtp server which authenticates via their IP so I'm not anticipating any issues here.
What I am wondering about though is the receive connector, Its currently: SvrExch01.abc.companyname.com
Can I just leave this as is? Does it need to match the FQDN I have in the send connector which I have set to: mail.companyname.com
Thanks for the help.
