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
