Change The Domain Type from Authoritative to InternalRelay


Active Exchange services, see Add Hosted Services.



This article demonstrates how to remove the authoritative feature of a domain

The authoritative feature of a domain grants priority of email handling for a domain to the exchange server. With this in place mail transport servers look to the exchange mail clusters for intra-domain mail delivery only. To allow for alternate routing or a Split Domain configuration, it is necessary to remove this feature by deleting the domain or changing it to InternalRelay. When removed mail transport servers will have the ability to deliver to the basic mail server, or an external source for intra-domain email.
