Hosted Exchange


I am in the process of moving a client's emails from their 2008 SBS Server to Hosted Exchange.

Within the SBS Exchange we have two companies i.e. and - is moving to the cloud and the other is saying on the SBS server for now.

When we try and send an email from the SBS to it bounces back. I understanding why it would as it's still trying to find the email address locally.

I have changed the accepted domains section with EMC to and changed all the email addresses within the mailboxes so there is no reference to  whoever the emails don't been to route outside the SBS Server which is going to be an issue.

I have tried to change the properties of the domain1 within accepted domains to external reply domain bt I get the error - Cannot remove the domain because it is referenced by the proxy address template ' ?

How can I get around this?

hey friends,

Did you ajust DNS entry as well. I think
- The DNS need to be ajusted in order to match and reroute the email correctly because.
- Create the right connector

Thank you

thanks for your reply, I may have resolved this.

I amended the Email Policy within EMC and removed the from default.

I also changed all the email addresses within each user and restarted all the services, I think the change needed time to populate through the sbs SERVER.

Keep you updated

The recipient policy should propagate on its own and remove those email addresses. You can right click and tell it to process now. But yes, that was likely your problem.

The only DNS record that references outside domain names would be the implicit record for the server's FQDN.
