Remove an Accepted Domain

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Accepted domains are any Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) namespace for which a Microsoft Exchange organization receives e-mail. This topic explains how to use the EMC or the Shell to remove an accepted domain.

Aa997275.Caution(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifCaution:
Don't perform this procedure on an Edge Transport server that has been subscribed to the Exchange organization by using EdgeSync. Instead, make the changes on the Hub Transport server. The changes are then replicated to the Edge Transport server next time EdgeSync synchronization occurs.

  • Before you remove an accepted domain, verify that the domain name isn't referenced in any e-mail address policy.
  • After you remove an accepted domain, the Exchange organization no longer accepts e-mail messages that are addressed to recipients in that domain. Make sure the change doesn't adversely affect the mail flow in your organization.
  • You can't delete an accepted domain that is set as the default accepted domain. To delete the default accepted domain, you must first create a new accepted domain, and then set the new accepted domain as the default accepted domain.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Accepted domains" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

  1. Open the Exchange Management Console. Perform one of the following steps:
    1. To remove an accepted domain on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, on that computer, in the console tree, select Edge Transport, and then in the work pane, click the Accepted Domains tab.
    2. To remove an accepted domain on a computer that has the Hub Transport server role installed, on that computer, in the console tree, expand Organization Configuration, select Hub Transport, and then in the work pane, click the Accepted Domains tab.
  2. In the result pane, select the accepted domain that you want to remove, and then in the action pane, click Remove.
  3. A dialog box appears with the text, "Are you sure you want to remove 'Accepted Domain'?", where Accepted Domain is the name of the accepted domain that you want to remove. Click Yes.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Accepted domains" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

Use the Remove-AcceptedDomain cmdlet to remove an existing accepted domain from your organization. The following example removes the accepted domain named "Woodgrove Bank":

Remove-AcceptedDomain -Identity "Woodgrove Bank"
