Exchange 2010:  Add second email address alias to all users

Hi All,

I've been asked to migrate a company on Exchange 2010 to IBM Notes 9.

As part of this process I need to allow both server to manage the same domain name space.  This is pretty simple to setup, but linking the Notes server to Exchange is proving difficult.  Mainly because it wont manage and forward the domain.

To fix this issue I need to add a new email domain alias to all the Exchange users.

e.g.
All the Exchange users have surname@mydomain.com, and I want to add the alias of surname@mydomain2.com to all users.

This will allow me to configure Notes to forward to surname@mydomain2.com


Many thanks
D

Add domain to Accepted Domains List.
Add domain to Email Address Policy, eitehr as an additional address on the existing policy or a new policy.

Hopefully you know who to blame for the Lotus Notes decision and have measures in place to deflect it from you. The end users will not like the huge backwards step from Exchange 2010 to Notes.

Yes, the escape plan is already in-place.

Where do I set the Accepted Domain List and Email Address Policy?

Thanks for the link.

I dont have the Accept Domains option;

Expand the Organization Configuration node, and then click Hub Transport. In the results pane, click the Accepted Domains tab.


I guess this is because my account isnt an Exchange Admin.  how do i give myself access?

An Exising user will need to login to RBAC and give your account the permissions it needs.

Ok, I've got admin access now and EMC has all the extra tabs.

I've added the mydomain2.com to the accepted domains tab.

how do i add surname@mydomain2.xom as an alias (keeping the current @mydomain.com)?

I had already answered that - you add the domain to Email Address Policy list - either by adjusting the existing policy or adding another one.
