  • 2. Deliver email to users in another local domain
    Hi, I have configured Windows 2003 AD on a local domain called '' and have added users to that domain. I have however emails delivered to '' and have added this in the recipients policy in exchange. Exchange has no problems retrieving the emails via the pop3 connector, however it fails to deliver the emails to the users email boxes, and signals '.....cannot deliver the email because the email domain name of the receiver is not a local email domain name' (sorry translated from dutch) So, I guess the question is.......How can i get users to send and receive emails that have an adres other then the local domain they logged on to??????

Move them?  Are they specifically set to expand on the original 5.5 machine?
If not, then they're site specific and you don't need to do anything to

2.Move distribution lists to new AD Domain?

Company A and Company B are merging.
Company B has a Win2k domain  and a bunch of "email-enabled security
groups" that show up as distribuition lists in Outlook.
They are moving to Company A's Server 2003 domain with Exchange 2003,
but the admins at company B will not have any direct access to control
or modify the new domain at Company A.
Company A will not use email enabled security groups, but will instead
only have direct distribution lists on the Exchange server.

How can the old distribution lists be moved onto the new company's
Exchange server so users will still be able access the same old lists
of email addresses from the new GAL?
Can email enabled security groups be exported from the old Win2k Active
Directory and then imported to the new domain's Exchange 2003 server by
sending CSV files to the new exchange admin?  If so how?
