I have the following virtual machine running:
- Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2
- Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1
I must admit that I am new with Windows Server and Exchange. I have however worked with Exchange 2003 and Windows Server 2003 and was successfully able to add domains and mailboxes, although I just used the active directory to add domains and to add users with an e-mail box.
I have added the 2nd domain via the Exchange Management Console under "Accepted Domains" (Organisation -> Hub Transport). The domain however did not appear in the dropdown box when I clicked new mailbox, it only listed the original server hostname domain.
On the internet I searched for about an hour for more information, but I have still not been able to find out how I can use the added domain for a new mailbox. I saw some information about "new email address policy", but when I looked at the instructions and the wizard, there was not much that made me think it would allow me to use the domain afterwards, especially since I could not select the new domain as recipient container.
I have added a new authoritative accepted domain for the organisation an new mail address policy.
New-AcceptedDomain -Name "mydomain.info” -DomainName mydomain.info -DomainType Authoritative New-EmailAddressPolicy -Name “@mydomain.info” -IncludedRecipients UserMailbox ConditionalDepartment “Fourth Coffee” -Priority 1 -EnabledEmailAddressTemplates “SMTP:@fourthcoffee.com” Update-EmailAddressPolicy -Identity “@mydomain.info”
When I click "New mailbox" still only the local domain name is listed.
