    Hi. I’m designing an Active Directory 2008 Parent/Child forest with Exchange 2007 and have a question about SMTP addresses.

    Parent Domain = PARENT which contains Exchange Organization PARENT. FQDN parent.xx.xx
    First Child Domain = CHILD1. Contains the main mail server for user accounts
    Second Child Domain = CHILD2. Contains most user accounts but no mail server
    Third Child Domain = CHILD3. Contains some special user accounts and a separate mail server (required by the customers in this domain)

    Most users will be in CHILD2 and have mail accounts on the mail server in CHILD1 in Organization PARENT. SMTP addresses for these accounts should be @PARENT.xx.xx

    A few users will be in CHILD3 and have mail accounts on the mail server in CHILD3 in Organization PARENT. SMTP addresses for these should be @CHILD.PARENT.xx.xx.xx

    I believe that I can do this with just the single Accepted Domain of PARENT.xx.xx and then build 2 different Email-Address Policies. One Email policy will have @PARENT.xx.xx and be assigned to users using the Company attribute value ONE. Second Email policy will have @CHILD.PARENT.xx.xx and be assigned to users in CHILD3 using the Company attribute value TWO.

    Have I correctly interpreted how this will work? I don’t want to have to have multiple forests . . .but the users in CHILD3 insist on having @CHILD3 as part of their SMTP address instead of just @PARENT.
