Divert Exchange Emails

Hi There Guys

I have a client running SBS2003 with Exchange, currently the Exchange server is collecting emails directly from the internet. Their domain is hosted with Melbourne IT, name servers belong to Melbourne IT (ns32a.ssggrp-wc.com, ns32b.ssggrp-wc.com).

He has sold his business, all staff will move to new office and have new email addresses. He wants to divert all current emails to the new email addresses. It is possible for him to keep the server running at his home but would prefer not too.

What is the best way to do this? hoping  a diversion at ISP level?

If I understand your question correctly, email is currently going to domainA.com to an exchange server called ServerA. You would like to have all the emails going to domainA.com be received by a new server, called ServerB.

You will need to configure ServerB to accept emails for domainA.com (you didn't mention ServerB's mail software). You will need to setup mailboxes and distribution groups for all the addresses for domainA.com. You will then need to change the MX record(s) for domainA.com to point to ServerB's FQDN.

You will also want to modify the SPF records for domainA.com and DKIM if used.

Sorry for late response, thanks for the information. I will have to find out what the new office (serverB) is running and whether we will have access to it.
