    Good afternoon,

    I have a user with two email addresses

    user@abc.com
    user@xyc.com

    each domain represents a different company, and when dealing with clients the user needs to send from the proper domain.

    any suggestions to accomplish this?

    thanks for the kb link, i currently have that set up and dont have a problem receiving. my problem is sending.

    ex:

    if im dealing with a abc client, i want to sent an email from abc.com
    and
    if im dealing with a xyc client, i want to send an email from xyc.com

    You want full mutli-domain virtual hosting. I've not yet heard of or found a way to do that with exchange.

    You can do it with linux/bsd using an smtp server (postfix comes recommended) and an imap/pop3 server (dovecot is recommended). Both support MySQL and PostgreSQL to make management easier.

    If anyone knows how to do it with exchange I'd be interested to know too.

    As far as I know, in exchange 2003, the admin has to select the "default" or "primary" email address. This is what will be used as the "from" when that user sends emails. I don't think there is any way to have the user select it...

    If you do find a way to do this please share tho

    In order to do it you have to change the primary email address on a per user bases ...

    Maybe moving to a standalone SMTP linux with a Postfix/Courier or a Postfix/Dovecot might be your only choice.

    I use Postfix/Courier setup for my SMTP server.

    so what i decided to was configure outlook with two emails, 1 exchange which will default to user1@abc.com and then configure a pop account so they can send from user2@xyc.com ... works great only problem is not im getting incoming messages twice, is there a way to set up pop on outlook for sending only?
