Creating and Configuring Additional DomainsDocument ID: 2156HQ
How do I create and configure additional domains?
The EIMS Server can handle mail for one domain or multiple domains. In most situations, an organization configures only a single domain on each server. However, if the organization is an ISP, for example, the server may be configured to handle mail for multiple domains.
The EIMS Server is automatically configured to support a single domain which is the same name as the hostname as listed in the DNS. If necessary, you can add any additional domains after installation. Mail users can be added as members of the additional domains you configure, and all mail should be addressed to them at this domain.
Important. Before assigning the server to multiple domains, ensure that the appropriate entries are made in DNS to support the domains.
For example, a company named EUDORA is a service provider for two different companies: HANDYHAL and TELCOR.
The domain name host.eudora.com was automatically assigned when the EIMS server was launched because the machine hosting the EIMS server is named host in the domain eudora.com.
For example, add the following domains for these organizations:
To do this, follow the steps listed below:
NOTE: Additional configuration for each supported domain on the server can also be performed.
Domain aliases are other domain names that can be used as aliases for the domains that are supported by the EIMS Server. For example, a company with the domain name WIDGETS.COM may also want to use the domain name PARTS.COM but not have to specify user accounts for each employee in both domains. By specifying a domain alias, firstname.lastname@example.org is the same user as email@example.com. E-mail could be sent to either address, and it is delivered to the same person's mailbox.
