Domain Name with NT SBS & Exchange serve

By ashit ·
I need answer to follwoing question ASAP, Thanks in advance.
I am installing NT SBS and Exchange server. NT is PDC.
My client has three domain names registered. Curretnly they do not have any mail server inhouse and they use mailboxes at ISP.I want to use one of three domain name as NT domain name and for e-mail like xyz@abc.com. Here abc.com is registered domain name. The questions I have are..
1) Can I have ISP forward e-mail to my exchange server if someone send e-mail with any of the domain name. e.g. NT SBS domain name is abc.com but exchange server should except e-mail of xyz@abc.com, xyz@the.com and xyz@new.com. All this three incoming e-mail should go to the same user inbox because user name is same.
2) Can I have different domain name for NT SBS then the name used with e-mail of exchange server.

I have this questions because my client have not yet decided which of three domain name they will use for e-mail when printing business card.

Thanks,

Yes to both questions. Your Exchange Server will have an IP address and your ISP will need to create an MX record for each domain that points to your Exchange Server but there is no problem with all three domains coming to that address - you will just need to set the Internet Mail Service in Exchange to expect mail from those three and to then route it all to <inbound>.

The Internet Mail Service on Exchange doesn't particularly seem to care what the NT domain is. As long as the reply addresses and incoming addresses are set up properly, the NT domain name shouldn't be a problem.

Although not required by Exchange, it would be better for the longer run if you use the domain name (one of them) as the site name in Exchange. For example, if your domain name is abc.com, you would used "abc" as the site name in Exchange. This way, each mailbox automatically gets assigned the first Internet mail address as user@abc.com. Then, you can add other email addresses to each mailbox as required. Your ISP can simply add an MX record for each of your domain(s) and your email will beforwarded to you, as long as you have at least one static, public IP address either on your Exchange server or on your SBS/Proxy server. The NT domain name does not have to match or correspond in any way to the public domain name. Just one thing - you don't say if you are using multiple physical server boxes but if you are, you need to be aware that the SBS server has to be the PDC; an SBS server cannot be anything but a PDC in an NT domain. Hope this helps!
