I some questions regarding the above a few months ago, and was pointed to the tutorials below. I have followed the tutorials, but have a few more questions for you experts. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb936719%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx#Optn1 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996314.aspx
To describe what I am doing in more details: I currently have my company (domain1.com) running on it's own Exchange 2010 server (Windows Server 2008). I also have my whole clan, about 25 family members, (domain2.com) running on a separate Exchange 2007 server (SBS 2008). I have recently acquired a new domain (domain3.com) which I want to move my company onto, so I will need to receive emails on the original domain and the new one.
So far... I have installed a typical instance of Exchange 2010 onto a new Server 2008 instance and have set it up as a domain in a new forest titled "domain3.com". I have created two organizational units under this active directory called "domain3.com" and "domain2.com". I have created three accepted domains in EMC titled "domain1.com", "domain2.com" and "domain3.com". I have created two email address policies titled "domain2.com and "domain3.com".
I DID NOT follow the steps in the above tutorials around changing permissions to the GAL, New Address List and Offline Address List as it doesn't matter if the different organizational units cross over on these. We do not make use of the GAL, and it doesn't matter if the different parties access the different Address Lists. Is this OK or should I have followed these steps too?
Am I on the correct track so far?
How do I configure the new users so that I can assign them to one of the two accepted domains? At the moment, they can only be assigned to domain3.com as it is set to default.
