Dear EE,

i've this time this formula below and is working great so far.

=IFERROR(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(LOWER(RIGHT(B3;(LEN(B3))-(SEARCH(",";B3))-1)&"."&LEFT(B3;(SEARCH(",";B3)-1))&"@"&VLOOKUP(B24;A18:B21GUL;2;FALSCH));" ";"");"/,";"");SUBSTITUTE(B3;" ";"")&"@"&VLOOKUP(B24;A18:B21;2;FALSE))

but i like 3 different smtp's in D9,D10,D11 depends on Cell B24

if B24 = GUL     D9 =  gul.com, D10 = gul.com   D11=gul.com                       
if B24 = GUL2   D9 =  gul.com, D10 = gul.com   D11=gul.com                        
if B24 = GIL      D9 =  gul.com, D10 = gil.com     D11=gul.com                        
if B24 = GIL2    D9 =  gul.com, D10 = gil.com     D11=gul.com                        
if B24 = LEL     D9 =  lel.com,   D10 = leld.com   D11=gel.com

The three formulas in D9, D10, and D11 were modified to look at a larger range (A18:D22) and to look in respectively further columns each time:

D9: =IFERROR(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(LOWER(RIGHT(B3,(LEN(B3))-(SEARCH(",",B3))-1)&"."&LEFT(B3,(SEARCH(",",B3)-1))&"@"&VLOOKUP(B24,A18:D22,2,FALSE))," ",""),"/,",""),SUBSTITUTE(B3," ","")&"@"&VLOOKUP(B24,A18:D22,2,FALSE))

D10: =IFERROR(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(LOWER(RIGHT(B3,(LEN(B3))-(SEARCH(",",B3))-1)&"."&LEFT(B3,(SEARCH(",",B3)-1))&"@"&VLOOKUP(B24,A18:D22,3,FALSE))," ",""),"/,",""),SUBSTITUTE(B3," ","")&"@"&VLOOKUP(B24,A18:D22,2,FALSE))

D11: =IFERROR(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(LOWER(RIGHT(B3,(LEN(B3))-(SEARCH(",",B3))-1)&"."&LEFT(B3,(SEARCH(",",B3)-1))&"@"&VLOOKUP(B24,A18:D22,4,FALSE))," ",""),"/,",""),SUBSTITUTE(B3," ","")&"@"&VLOOKUP(B24,A18:D22,2,FALSE))

Note that I did not change any of the casing for the name (i.e., upper/lower case).  

I also intentionally added errors to the lookup range (=1/0...#DIV/0!) in order to force the function to return the default domain name.

Example workbook attached.
