New-AcceptedDomain

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Use the New-AcceptedDomain cmdlet to create an accepted domain in your organization. An accepted domain is any SMTP namespace for which an Exchange organization sends and receives e-mail.


New-AcceptedDomain -Name <String> -DomainName <SmtpDomainWithSubdomains> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-DomainType <Authoritative | ExternalRelay | InternalRelay>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description

DomainName

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.SmtpDomainWithSubdomains

The DomainName parameter specifies the SMTP domain that you want to establish as an accepted domain. Valid input for the DomainName parameter is an SMTP domain. You can use a wildcard character to specify all subdomains of a specified domain, as shown in the following example: *.contoso.com.

However, you can't embed a wildcard character, as shown in the following example: domain.*.contoso.com. The domain name string may not contain more than 256 characters.

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies a unique name for the accepted domain object.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory. The DomainController parameter isn't supported on the Edge Transport server role. The Edge Transport server role writes only to the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instance.

DomainType

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.SystemConfiguration.AcceptedDomainType

The DomainType parameter specifies the type of accepted domain that you want to configure. Valid values are Authoritative, InternalRelay, or ExternalRelay. You must set at least one value.

In an authoritative domain, messages are delivered to a recipient that has a domain account in your Exchange organization. In an internal relay domain, messages are relayed to a server outside your Exchange organization, but still under the authority of your company or IT department. Use the internal relay domain if you want to treat the messages to this domain as internal messages. In an external relay domain, messages are relayed to an e-mail server, outside your organization, which you don't control.

The default value is Authoritative.

Organization

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OrganizationIdParameter

The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Accepted domains" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

This example creates the new authoritative accepted domain Contoso.

New-AcceptedDomain -DomainName Contoso.com -DomainType Authoritative -Name Contoso
