Email_Aliases: What is the process to adding a mail domain?
What is the process to adding a mail domain
Once the domain has been added to the portal and the aliases have been created they will exist on our mail server. We then need to make sure the mail is flowing to the mail server.
If this is a new mail domain
An MX record needs to be created and pointed to incoming-relays.illinois.edu
Tech Services needs to be contacted and instructed to point your domain from the incoming-relays to our mail server mail.engr.illinois.edu
Once they have confirmed the change on their end I would suggest creating a test alias on the portal tool and making sure the email works properly
If this is a preexisting mail domain
Arrange with techservices a time to repoint the incoming-relays from your mail server to mail.engr.illinois.edu
We require the use of the campus incoming relays. If you do not use them currently have them create an entry for you and point it to mail.engr.illinois.edu.
After that has been created update the MX record for your domain to point to incoming-relays.illinois.edu
Create a new test alias on the portal tool and make sure it is working properly
