FIM 2010: GAL syncrhonization on forest with the same smtp domain

If I'm correct this is no problem at all. I think it's a common requirement to use the same SMTP domain in such a coexistance situation. In fact we're doing it too right now using FIM 2010. Suppose the customer uses as it's main SMTP domain. You'll have to pick additional namespaces just for mail-routing purposes. User will not actually see these. So you could have and One for each Exchange organization. A mailbox in Domain A would have a targetaddress of (and still a primary of Whilst the contact (GAL Sync) for this mailbox in Domain B would also have a targetAddress of This way mail routing should know in "which" Exchange organization to deliver it's mail. The above process might not be 100% accurate. But I'm pretty sure it covers most of it. Good Luck, Thomas
