pop3 and smtp accounts on exchange2000

By scottsman ·
Hi all I have a problem. I have a small buisness server 2000 running exchange 2000. I have two seperate email domains parag.com and paraa.com. one has an mx record pointing to my exchange server the other is a pop3 account. My users use mail from both accounts. I need to have the users send from domain g and from domain a. we use outlook 2000 any thoughts would be appreciated

Obviously the problem is that Outlook is sending all mail with the reply address of the domain with the mx record.

My only thoughts would be to continue using outlook with the mx record domain, then use Outlook express for mail in the pop3 domain.

In my company we have Exchange server for business use.
Some users also want to be able to send/receive their mail from other e-mail accounts (usually private ones or those unsupported by us).
I have instructed them to use Outlook 2000 strictly for business and not to create any additional e-mail accounts there.
I told them to use Outlook Express or some other mail client for their other accounts. These other clients are officialy unsupported, but we sometimes help them with these too.

This is how I would set this up.

Givens: Domain1.com has it's mx record pointing to your mail server
making your Exchange server responsible for mail from that domain.

DOmain2.com has it's mx record pointing to an external source.
You do not control that mail server, and your clients have to physically
get their mail via POP accounts.


Scenario

All users will have option of sending mail as
user@domain1.com or user@domain2.com
and will recieve mail from both domains.

In exchange:

For each user that requires to send as Domain2.com, you will need to setup
a custom recipient. For type choose Internet Mail and put in their
Domain2.com address.

Make their First name, Display Name and Alias as user@domain2.com.

In Permissions give Send As rights to the Specific User.
**Do not hide the address from the Address Book**

On Client Side In Outlook:

Go to Tools/Forms/Choose Form. Choose Standard Forms (drop down and scroll up)
Choose message.

When Message comes up go to View/From Field (check it off). Next save the message.
Close out of the message. (You can delete it out of it's drafts folder)

Make a new message. Press the from field (important not to type in this field *see notes)
Go to the Global Address book and choose the correct custom address.

Now go into Tools/Services and add new Mail Account. If it is already there OK,
if not add it. If you need an SMTP server to send out use yours, but in the
area that "My smtp server requires auth" choose yes/settings and put in that persons
domain username and password. That will allow them to pass mail thru your mail server.
*See notes to understand why.

Notes:

If they do not choose a person in the from field, it will use their default address.
Which should be domain1.com.

All incoming mail will be dumped into their exchange mailboxes, which is a very good thing.

Do not use PST folders. PST's can be deleted from local machines, and poof all mail gone,
bye bye, so sorry.

Make sure in conncections/IMS/routing/routing restrictions/USers who authenticate is checked
off. (This prevents mail relaying thru your server)

If you type in the full address here or use an address from your personal adress book,
exchnage will have a hissy. You can however type the Alias there to get it to resolve.
**But make sure you have the clients set to resolve names first thru the global catalog.

In the meantime,

Work on getting the MX record for Domain2 pointing to your exchange server. It will
save you heartache. You can still use the above send as. But you can get rid of the
pop accounts.

Good luck and have fun!
