  Sure, I've done it in the lab to see the stuff it breaks. So I can go and 
help clients that have shot themselves in the foot.

  Don't do it. Fixing it is too much trouble. It CAN be done - but MSFT won't 
support you, except to tell you to move everything off and flatten that server.

    Ahhhh, Michael, you make step 7 seem so insignificant and easy....  :-)

    I'm guessing the DC was the first Exchange server in the organization.  If 
so it's can be a real B*&ch to remove.  Do a little research on MS site to see 
how to remove the first server.  There are step by step instructions on how to 
do it, but if it doesn't fly right the first try ADSIedit is going to become 
your best friend.

    BTW, didn't your Mom ever tell you to never put Exchange on a DC?   ;-)

    Hi,

     

    We are running Exchange 2003, on a windows 2000 os.  We have just bought 21 
domain names and are in the process of testing them.  I'm going to set them up 
as relay's in our exchange environment so we can accept mail.

     

    Is there a way in exchange to route mail from these new domains to one 
person without having to set up a contact or add an smtp email address?  Thanks.

     

    Regards,

     

    -Christine
