I have a question regarding Exchange Server on SBS 2003. Right now we have a domain setup called accilentcapital.com... within that domain we have an A Record and MX record pointing at our exchange server. However, we are soon taking control of another domain (DOCP.CA) and we need that domain to point to our exchange server. Now, I am new to all of this, so I am unsure what exactly it is I have to do in the SBS 2003 server in order for the docp.ca email to work properly.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

For the company you will purchase, you will point their MX record to your A record. It is more important to know if you will have people trying to send with the ‘old’ email address. The reverse DNS setting could be a problem if not associated with your A record.

Internally, you would want to add the ‘old email’ addrss to the appropriate individuals exchange email addresses. Make sure to set the appropriate address as Primary.

It sounds like he needs to use the ADMT tool to migrate the users from the new domain into his current domain. After that he can use the Exchange Migration Tool to move their mailboxes and their X500 records. Finally he needs to change the public MX record for the new domain so that emails sent to user@docp.com will be delivered properly to the Exchange server.

Write again if you need more details on the process.

    What level is the other domain you acquiring? Is it also 2003? Will it become a child domain to your exisiting domain? Here is a web site with several scenarios that might be of help to you. It is a Tech Republic site and you may have to get a logon id, but they are free.
