We are a service based company. We have a few custom web interfaces we have built for our customers to login. They login to view open tickets...etc.

All is integrated with Active Directory. So when we add a new customer, we have a naming convention of firstfourofcompanyname.firstname.lastname. We would like to add their email address, like bob.lastname@domainname.com, but when I add a new user in Active Directory it only works for our domain name (domain.local).

So my question is, can I add all of our customers domain names?

You can add e-mail address with your customers domain names but AD domain for all user is same you can not add in single AD domain multiple domain name.

And ofcourse if you were to add email address of bob.lastname@domainname.com into your exchange environment for a user created on YOUR domain, you would never be able to email bob.lastname@domainname.com ever again!
