Add new domain?

Add new domain?

I am new to Exchange 2013. I first created a default domain xxx.com. Then I wanted to add a second domain yyy.com. Here is what I did:

Mail flow->Accepted domains->Add
Mail flow->Email address policies->Added second domain

Still, when I try to add a user I only have one domain I can choose from (the default one). Any idea how to solve this?

RE: Add new domain?

I think you don't get a choice during creation, but the actual email address that is used is based on other factors, mainly determined in how you set up your email address policy. If I were you, I'd set up a separate OU under Users in AD for each separate email domain that you want to be primary for your users. Then craft an additional email address policy that makes your new domain the primary one for any user, and set the filter on that policy so that it only applies to user who are in that particular OU. That way when you create new users, simply selecting the OU that they are created in will also set their primary email address domain.
