Think of a scenario where there is a business requirement in your company to have a separate email domain for a set of users. These users can belong to a different business unit within your organization for which you want to provision a different e-mail address, or could belong to a sister company managed by the same SBS 2011 Standard server. This blogpost will demonstrate the steps for accomplishing this, which breaks down into two parts:
There are certain things you must have in order before following this procedure. Make sure you have done the following:
Configure the accepted domain entry by following these steps:
Next, we need to configure an e-mail address policy for the authoritative domain. You can either modify an existing policy, or create additional e-mail address policy for a filtered set of recipients to meet the objectives of your scenario.
In this example, we will create additional e-mail address policy that will be used as the primary e-mail address for a filtered set of recipients whose properties identify a specific company affiliation under the Custom OU as shown in the below screen shot from Active Directory Users and Computers:
Is there some way to apply secondary email domain to user when user account is created? I mean that when I create new individual user, who is going to use that secondary domain, the secondary domain is allready assigned to that user without the need to run that email policy or do it by hand from user mailbox properties?
I tryed that email policy, assigned it to custom recipient container (OU) but it dont seem to address secondary email domain to user right after user account is created.
How would the users of the secondary e-mail access webmail? Would they login via the exact same URL as for the primary email domain or would it be another URL?
