Internet Addressing override?

Here's a scenario that we're facing that I need your input on.

Our domain is genesco.com. In Internet Addressing, we have an additional domain called domain2.com which is also a legitimate domain for a real company out there. This is set up because we have one person in our system who's email needs to appear to come from domain2.com instead of genesco.com.

We have internet addressing turned on and also first/last completion in all of its forms because we have some apps that use first/last completion to send mail

Here's the problem. We have a user named joe smith in genesco.com (userid jsmith). There is also a REAL user named joe smith at domain2.com. When a person here sends an email to joe.smith@domain2.com, the internet addressing, because of name matching, is instead routing the email to jsmith@genesco.com. When we turn off the name matching, the problem goes away but we can't turn it off in production.

Is there a way to send a message to joe.smith@domain2.com that would override or bypass the name completion and force it to be routed through the gwia to the outside world? Some format we could put the name in to accomplish this?

Just a thought, what happens if you change *your* joe.smith to known only
by genesco in his address overrides ?

Cheers Dave

David, that seems to have done it. I changed our joe smith to that setting and then sent an email to joe.smith@domain2.com and it went out correctly. Then I tested it again by sending a message to myself at jim.gosney@domain2.com (and didn't set that option for my address) and it delivered to my genesco.com account.

Thanks! I never would have come up with that one on my own.

Re: Internet Addressing override?

Glad to help, and your joe only needs the one domain ?. The final test
might be to ask him to send a test mail to his doppelganger

Cheers Dave
