I need to understand exchange Accepted domain in this scenario :

Let s say i have exchange organization named mycompany.com, so users email address is username@mycompany.com

If I want User1@mycompany.com to also receive email for Virtcompany.com
user1 has only one mailbox for the domain mycompany.com
Can we just add Virtcompany.com to the accepted domains then add secondary email address to user1 as user1@virtcomapny.com, that way he can receive emails destined for both addresses in the same mailbox..

Thank you

yes, that is correct.

also edit dns to make sure the mx record for that second domain points to your exchange server (or anything that sits in front of it)

Yes its correct but you also need a MX for it as how would the Internet world understand that your server is Authorized to receive emails for that Domain.

Your users will however be only able to send emails from just the Primary email address

Not true. Your users can send from the other domains as well.

In the Send Connector, you specify the list of address spaces for which the connector is responsible.

You'll also need to set up separate mailboxes for each domain. In other words, you should not have one mailbox with two addresses, domain1.com and domain2.com

Set up a mailbox for user@domain2.com and then give 'send as' permissions to the user at domain1.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I am not sure that I will have to set up 2 mailboxes for one user.
one user with one mailbox can have primary and secondary email address...they can receive for both email addresses... when they send , it is by default , it will use the primary email address, but in outlook user can specify in the FROM: field the secondary email address.
example: user1@secondaryemailaddress.com
Correct me if I am wrong
