Hi folks,

We have just acquired a new domain name that we are going to use as our primary domain. Our old domain will still be in use, just in case, but deprecated, if you will.

For the time being, I have entered the new domain as an alias to the old one, and that works for IMAP, but MAPI defaults to the actual domain name unless you change details within the "Account Info" portion of the connector setup. That's a bit more cumbersome on multiple desktops, not to mention having to remember to do that each and every time.

Sooooo..... I am looking for ways to migrate all of our users to the new domain without having to recreate users, migrate mailboxes etc. The easiest option, AFAICT, is:

1.) Request new License key from Communigate that has new domain as primary.
2.) Block access to the server, remove the old keys, remove new domain alias, rename the primary domain.
3.) Add new keys, add old domain alias, restore access to server.

Is there another way to do this?

Tom
