I tried what you said but am not having much luck. I'm
not 100% sure I set it up properly though. Our active
directory domain is "tnlhdom.local". The domain we want
to receive mail on is "truenorthloghomes.com". Do I have
to add "truenorthloghomes.com" as a UPN suffix and then
modify my account in active directory (account tab) to
say "truenorthloghomes.com" instead of "tnlhdom.local" as
it is now?
Then, as far as setting up a new recipient policy, do I
create a policy that for "logon name" ends
with "truenorthloghomes.com" and apply that??
Do I have to set up the "truenorthloghomes.com" domain
name in DNS anywhere? Right now there is only an entry in
there for "TNLHDOM.local" - opur local AD domain.
This is all new to me and I am really confused as to why
it isn't working.
