Configuring Inbound Address Rewrite
Applies to: Forefront Online Protection for Exchange
Topic Last Modified: 2012-04-16
In Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE), the Inbound Address Rewrite is a function of Group Filtering. It rewrites the recipient addresses for specific users and delivers messages for those recipients based on the Virtual Domain IP Address Settings. For example, the HR department at Contoso needs to receive email at hr.contoso.com, even though the delivery location may be the same as the main contoso.com domain. As with Group Filtering, each user is associated with a Virtual Domain. Each Virtual Domain is then configured to deliver email to specific servers within the organization.
On the Administration tab, click the Domains tab.
In the Domains list, click the name of the domain that you want to associate as the Parent Domain to the new Virtual Domain. You can search for a specific domain name by using the search box.
In the Domain Settings pane, in the Virtual Domains section, click Add.
Enter the name for the Virtual Domain in the Virtual domain name text box.
Note: The Virtual Domain must be formatted like a subdomain of the Parent Domain. In order to add a Virtual Domain the Parent Domain must be validated and enabled. The User List Settings on the Parent Domain must be set to Admin Center or SFTP, and it must have Directory-Based Edge Blocking (DBEB) set to Reject or Passive mode.
If you are using the Virtual Domain for Grouping and not for Intelligent Routing, check Deliver to original address in parent domain. If you are using the Virtual Domain for Intelligent Routing, do not check the box.
The following is a view of the Add Virtual Domain dialog box.
