Specify a display name. Then in the "Accepted Domain" field, type the email domain you wish to accept and process email. Then specify the type of Accepted Domain. We picked "Authoritative".

5. Understand which Accepted Domain Type you need.

"Authoritative" is used when you own this name space and do not share it with anyone else and will be your choice in most cases. If you share a namespace between organizations, where mail users are split between two separate messaging systems, use the "Internal Relay" Domain. Any address that can't be resolved to an Exchange user is forwarded to the other system. An "External Relay" is when Exchange accepts the messages for another system and forwards ALL mail to it. It acts as an SMTP gateway.

6. Click Save.
