I just started at my company and trying to understand the following:

Our internal domain is: domain.company.com but our email address for our company is mail.company.com

Under ADUC, there is not an option for additional DNS suffixed for UPN login. With this in mind, how is it that users are able to log into the domain using there email address?

Nothing is listed under AD Domain and Trust as well...

There is no parent company.

You can add the mail.company.com UPN suffix

Then you can select that for your users in their account properties.

Thanks

AD is your internal domain name and the mail.company.com is usually your external registered Domain Name. In Exchange this is populated from the Email Address Policy. You can give you users any UNP suffix can be anything but your Exchange is usually different than your internal domain name as this is split brain DNS.

Thanks...

I am just confused it users can log into our internal AD domain with their email address if the UPN / domain suffix is not an option under the UPN drop down in ADUC... This is why I am confused???
