Hosted Exchange On A Subdomain
This guide will give you an overview on how to run exchange as a
sub-domain giving you more control over your email hosting solutions.
Most users opt for this type of setup so they can segregate their domain
exchange users from their typical POP3/IMAP users. All the information
in this guide assume you are using a Myhosting.com web hosting package
and our Exchange Hosting solution
Hosting Plan Sign Up
First you will want to have an already established hosting plan from
Myhosting.com. Any of the plans will work from email hosting to
Professional hosting. Each has POP3/IMAP accounts which are managed
through the Email Administration section of the customer control panel.
You will want to then create your Exchange Hosting on a sub-domain e.g.
exchange.yourdomainname.com which can be signed up through the alternative signup site.
Setting Up The POP3/IMAP
Now that we have the hosting accounts activated and setup we can now
configure the email accounts. Each account we plan on having on the
exchange email will also need to have a mailbox on the main domain
POP3/IMAP email system. For our example we'll use test and the mailbox
we will be creating.
Once you have created the account you will have to setup the forwarding to the exchange mailbox we plan on creating firstname.lastname@example.org . You can retain a copy of the original message on the POP3/IMAP account as well by putting '.,' before the desired exchange mailbox.
Setting Up Exchange
Now we can create the Professional Exchange mailbox and set it up to reply with the email@example.com
address so recipients are unaware that your Exchange hosting is on a
sub-domain. After creating the mailbox you can go into that mailbox's
settings by clicking on the 'GO' option.
We can now add our POP3/IMAP account that we previously created as an
'Alternative' email address. Once added we can now select it as our
'Primary From' address.
