Hello,

A client of mine wants me to add a secondary domain address (ie domain2.com)
to his existing domain (ie domain1), I figured:

1.  in order to do that I will need to change the mx record for domain2 to point the location of  domain1 in order to receive emails

2. add a new accepted domain to exchange 2007 - so far so good

3. create email address policy in  order to enable users to send email using their user@domain2

scenario is that domain1 is sbs 2008 up and working (domain1) and my client wants users to send a receive emails for/from an other domain (domain2). are those steps correct? is it even possible? will it assign my current users a secondary email address they can send from outlook 2007?

thanks,

Gilad

yes just add the new domain to the accepted domains and to the address policy and that's it!

This will NOT create a secondary domain that they can send from in Outlook.  You will need to create a dummy POP3 account for them to be able to switch between the two.  Here's how to do that:
