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

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 Transport Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




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.




The Name parameter specifies a unique name for the remote domain object.




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.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




This parameter is available for multi-tenant deployments. It isn't available for on-premises deployments. For more information about multi-tenant deployments, see Multi-Tenant Support.

The Organization parameter specifies the organization in which you'll perform this action. This parameter doesn't accept wildcard characters, and you must use the exact name of the organization.




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.

To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.

To see the return types, which are also known as output types, that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Output Type field is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t return data.

This example creates the remote domain Contoso.

New-RemoteDomain -DomainName Contoso.com -Name Contoso
