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? ;-) George Taylor Systems Programmer Regional Health Inc. _____ From: Michael B.

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.
