New-RemoteDomain

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2014-04-11

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2013 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

Use the New-RemoteDomain cmdlet to create a managed connection for a remote domain. When you create a remote domain, you can control mail flow with more precision, apply message formatting and messaging policies, and specify acceptable character sets for messages sent to and received from the remote domain.

New-RemoteDomain -DomainName <SmtpDomainWithSubdomains> -Name <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example creates the remote domain Contoso.

New-RemoteDomain -DomainName Contoso.com -Name Contoso

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 "Remote domains" entry in the Mail flow permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

DomainName

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.SmtpDomainWithSubdomains

The DomainName parameter specifies the SMTP domain that you want to establish as a remote 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 contain a maximum of 256 characters.

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies a unique name for the remote 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

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

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 Edge Transport servers. An Edge Transport server uses the local instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) to read and write data.

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.
