Configure Accepted Domain Properties

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

An accepted domain is any SMTP domain for which Microsoft Exchange accepts incoming messages. Accepted domains can be authoritative or relay domains. Accepted domains are configured as global settings for the Exchange organization and on computers that have the Edge Transport server role installed.

CautionCaution:
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.

Looking for other management tasks related to transport servers? Check out Managing Transport Servers.

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. If you're configuring an accepted domain on a Hub Transport server, in the console tree, navigate to Organization Configuration > Hub Transport. On an Edge Transport server, select Edge Transport in the console tree.
  2. In the work pane, select the Accepted Domains tab on the right, and then double-click the accepted domain you want to configure.
  3. Use the General tab to specify how Exchange handles the e-mail messages that it accepts for this domain:
    • Name   The name of the accepted domain is displayed in the first field on the General tab. This is a display name for the accepted domain and doesn't have to match the actual SMTP domain.
    • Authoritative Domain   Select this option if this domain is used for e-mail addresses of the recipients in your organization.
    • Internal Relay Domain   To specify that e-mail messages are either delivered to recipients in your organization or relayed to a server outside your Exchange organization but still under the authority of your company or IT department, select this option.
    • External Relay Domain   To specify that e-mail messages sent to recipients in this domain are relayed to an e-mail server outside your organization, select this option.

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.

You use the Set-AcceptedDomain cmdlet to configure the properties of an accepted domain. This example configures the accepted domain for Woodgrove Bank as an authoritative domain.

Set-AcceptedDomain "Woodgrove Bank" -DomainType Authoritative

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-AcceptedDomain.
