Hi All,

What could be the impact when I remove the accepted domain in Exchange Server 2007 ?

for example:
Domain1.com
Domain2.com
Domain3.com

assuming the whole companywide can no longer accept the email when I remove Domain2.com, I wonder what will happens to the emails send to user1@domain2.com ?

how long will it takes before the email is rejected ?

imkottees is correct.

The minute you remove the domain it will begin rejecting email.  However, if/when you remove the domain you may have to remove it prior from accounts that have it as an alias email-address.

ok, so what about the secondary email address that is applied to all of the mailboxes as the secondary SMTP address ?

they would not remove from the mailbox properties by itself.. you should remove them manually..

If you dont want DOmain2.com to receive emails you can also have that done using Transport rule or even redirect or NDR so depends how you want to proceed

#< #5.4.6 SMTP; 554 5.4.6 Too many hops> #SMTP#
