  • This topic applies only to customers using FOPE in a stand-alone environment, and not as part of the Microsoft Office 365 or Live@edu services. Microsoft Office 365 and Live@edu subscribers cannot enable or disable a domain in the FOPE Administration Center.

  • Domains must be validated before they are enabled. For more information about validating a domain, see Validate a Domain.

In Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE), a domain must be enabled before it can start sending and receiving email through the Hosted Filtering service. If you are no longer using a domain or would like to suspend the use of it without deleting its configuration settings, you can disable it.

How to enable or disable a domain
  1. On the Administration tab, click the Domains tab.

  2. In the Domains list, click the name of the domain that you want to modify. You can search for a specific domain name by using the search box.

  3. In the Tasks pane, click Enable Domain to enable the domain. To disable the domain, click Disable Domain.
