Creating Multiple Outgoing Domains

Creating Multiple Outgoing Domains

Creating Multiple Outgoing Domains


We are in the process of changing the domain name of our company.  I need to be able to configure our GroupWise system to handle sending out email on both domains - the old and the new.

We have incoming working fine (we just added the new domain to the foreign id field).

Can anyone help?


RE: Creating Multiple Outgoing Domains

I don't believe you can have a user send e-mail out from two different domains at the same time.  Besides, if you could, the recipient would get two copies of the same message.

In other words you're EITHER    johndoe@olddomain or johndoe@newdomain in terms of outbound e-mails.  INCOMING e-mail is a different story - both can be received into the same mailbox to allow for people on the outside to start sending to the new.

The thing to do is switch the outbound e-mail to the new domain and put a signature in the e-mail about "please note my new e-mail address.  The old e-mail address will no longer be functional after xx/xx/2008.  Please update your address book."

RE: Creating Multiple Outgoing Domains


Ideally I would like the user at the groupwise client to be able to choose which domain to send out on.

If that is not possible - where do I change in the GWIA (or is it someplace else) the outbound domain to the new domain?


RE: Creating Multiple Outgoing Domains

The default domain to send from is controlled from "Internet Addressing" in ConsoleOne.
