changing external domain name and email address with SBS 2008 Server
Posted on 2014-11-20
We have an SBS 2008R2 server. We have an external domain name for email, OWA email access, Remote Web Workplace and externally hosted web page, Current external domain is say abc.com email is going to email@example.com We use remote.abc.com for OWA and Remote Web Workplace
Management changed the company name and also added a new external domain name and externally host3ed web page with that domain name say xyz.com
They want email to now got to firstname.lastname@example.org and now use remote.zyx.com for OWA and Remote Web Workplace
Our issue is we have never done this with SBS. We believe it needs to be wizard driven or it can mess up everything with internal users and AD etc. The web page designers they have higher to do this have already created the web page and host it ad have created new letterhead and business cards and sent them out with xyz.com web page and email addresses. Then they come to use and say can t you just add an MX record? !!!
we don't have a lot of experience with SBS but I don't think it is anywhere that simple. We need to consider that they still want firstinitiallastname @abc.com mail to comes through.
There will be issues with SSL certificate for RWW and OWA we believe and also SBS can't have child domains so not really sure what will happen if we run the Internet Wizards and email wizard to change the external domain to xyz.com
think we loose all ability to get abc.com email;???
Can anyone explain just what needs to be done and even if it can at this point or have we been boxed in by SBS and a Web design marketing PR firm that mislead the owns and never suggested checking with us first before sending all this new stuff out. We get call telling us to "just change it" !!
