Exchange 2013 additional domains

Hi I have just taken over a server running Exchange 2013 which is the first time I have used it.

They have got a few different domains spread over a few different users which accept emails fine.

I have purchased a new domain and set the MX record to the IP address of the Exchange 2013 server.
I have added the new domain into the accepted domains and looks to be setup the same as the others.

I have then attached a new email address to a user and send a test but nothing is received.
If I send an email to the old address it works fine.

Have I missed something on the server when adding the domain?

Thanks

Also just tried to telnet the new MX record created, so remote.NEWDOMAIN.com and the server responds all ok

Can you confirm that the MX records are pointing to the same place as the other domains in your environment?

Hi yes MX records are the same as far as I can see.

We don't own the old domains so they will be phased out.

Only difference I can see is the MX record is mail.olddomain.com but I have setup remote.newdomain.com

They both point to the same IP address.

That's what's making me think it's a setting in Exchange 2013 I have missed.

Thanks.

Hi looks like I may have been a bit quick off the mark and the DNS wasn't fully updated!

Seems ok on one of the new domains now.
