Default 2 email domains, 2 users, 1 email address

Hi folks

first time poster here...

I have Exchange running on SBS 2003 and have a potential problem with email receiving.

At the moment I have 1 internal domain (domain.local) and 2 external internet domains ( and and 2 email accounts ([email protected] and [email protected]).

I currently use a POP3 connector to pick up the mail for one of these domains and then route email to the correct account using the POP3 connector routing rules.

I envisage a problem if I update the MX record online so that both my domains receive email directly and I dont know where email sent to "[email protected]" or [email protected]" will go.

I have created 2 users, InfoDomain1 and InfoDomain2 and these have their primary email addresses set to [email protected] and [email protected] respectively.

So if a user sends an email to [email protected] will it go to [email protected] because the name before the "@" i.e. "info" is the same?

Hope someone can shed some light as I'm sure I'm making things overly complicated.

many thanks
