Just add the new domain to the existing Recipient Policy and make it the default domain and it will update all your existing email addresses (if they are updated via the Recipient Policy) and you should be sending out as the new domain.

If you only want a handful of users to use the new domain name - just add the Domain to the Recipient Policy and don't make it the default, this will add the new domain to the users accounts, but not make it the default, then you can manually modify each user that you do want to use the new address by making the new domain default and unticking the Update the email addresses based on the recipient policy check box.

Why spend so long doing email signature updates?

Do you spend loads of your time carrying out email signature updates? Not very interesting are they? Don’t let signature updates get you down. Let Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 make managing email signatures a breeze.

The domains are handled as accepted domains by adding a new Recipient Policy and making Exchange Responsible for the domain.

You dont need to configure SMTP on Exchange server. Only point the MX record of the new domain to the same IP of Old domain rest Exchange will take care.

So if i look for MX record for ABC .com or ABC2.com it should return me the same IP.
