We have a single AD domain that also matches our primary email domain (e.g. @primarydomain.com), but we also have multiple company specific email domains (e.g. @companydomain.com) hosted in Office 365. We use AD Sync to sync users from our local domain with O365.

Manually we would create a user in AD with a default email address that would match the following: firstname.surname@primarydomain.com

We would then sync to O365, and after the fact we would then amend the email property for the user in AD to firstname.surname@companydomain.com, and then add SMTP:firstname.surname@companydomain.com and smtp:firstname.surname@primarydomain.com to the proxy address fields for the user in AD. After the next sync the user will then have firstname.surname@companydomain.com as primary email address, firstname.surname@primarydomain.com as an alias and firstname.surname@primarydomain.com as O365 login name.

How can I replicate this in Adaxes, considering that we would like to also link the companydomain.com to the user's company value set in AD.

Hello Jacques,

Proxy addresses can be updated using the Modify Exchange properties action after assigning a Microsoft 365 (former Office 365) license which includes Exchange Online. The action should be configured to add the necessary proxy address (e.g. firstname.surname@companydomain.com) and set it as primary. It can be configured using a template like the following: %firstname%.%lastname%@companydomain.com. If the value of the Company property matches part of the relevant domain name for the new address, the %company% value reference can be used in the template (e.g. %firstname%.%lastname%@%company%domain.com). For information on how to use value references, see https://www.adaxes.com/help/?ValueReferences.ValRefFormat.html.

For information on how to automate Exchange mailbox configuration, please, have a look at the following tutorial: https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_AutomatingDailyTasks_AutomateExchangeMailboxConfiguration.htm. Pay attention to Example 4 on step 3.
