Exchange Remote Domain

I wonder in what scenario I should create Remote Domain in Exchange?

I know that we can have accepted domain, so that our internal users can have an email address with the suffix of the accepted domain.
for instance if our exchange email is cheezebox.com  and accepted domain is chocbox.com
then User1 can have both emails, user1@cheeze.com and User1@chocbox.com.

of course cheesebox.com and chocbox.com should have MX record on the internet pointing to our external interface of our firewall…

But what about Remote domain, when does it come to play?
I have done some reading online, but still not clear on it


Thanks you

Hello,

Remote domains are used to control message format options to specific domains. Most implementations would only use the Default remote domain but you may want to specify whether you allow out-of-office messages or automatic replies to certain domains. Some older mail systems have trouble with the rich-text message format, so you may also want to specify that rich-text is never used for that domain.

Remote domains define SMTP domains that are external to your Exchange organization.
When you configure remote domains, you can prevent certain types of messages from being sent to that domain. These message types include out-of-office messages, auto-reply messages, non-delivery reports (NDRs), and meeting forward notifications

I already gave you examples but here they are again:

1. You are sending mail to an older mail system that can't handle the rich text format, so you create a remote domain entry for that domain and specify that rich-text is never used for that domain.

2. You have a remote domain you are sending to that houses an automated application and you don't want automated replies send back, so you setup a remote domain and specify that OOO messages and automatic replies are not allowed to this domain.

So to configure  Remote domain in Exchange server :

The remote domain has to have an Exchange server ?
and we are managing the remote domain Exchange server ?
should the remote domain have exchange servers within our organization?

The remote domain does not need to be an Exchange server. It is a server outside your Exchange organization.
