Hey guys, not sure if this is the right place for this question but I thought your group might run into this every now and then. (I also put this in dev center, but no response and migration date is tomorrow at 5am).

I am moving a group of emails from Gmail to hosted exchange and in the process they are switching domain names to better represent their brand. Instead of manually setting up email forwarding for 40+ users is there a way that I can forward any emails sent to domain X to domain Y? I have control of both domains.

i.e. emails sent to UniqueUser@x.com end up in UniqueUser@y.com?

I can accomplish my goal by setting up email forwarding in each of the old email accounts but I'd prefer to handle this at the domain level just to ensure accuracy and get it done in the 1 hour window during the switch and the beginning of the workday.

It's been a while since I administered a name server, but I seem to recall using MX records to designate the mail server. So you'd do an MX record for x.com to y.com's mail server.

This is exactly what I'd suggest if x is going to become y, and doesn't need to continue to receive mail by the same email servers.
