  1. thanks for this post. i would like to know if it is possible to share a domain namespace between Mdaemon email server and exchange 2013. currently the MX record is pointing at Mdaemon and an internal relay connected is configured to send emails to users on Mdaemon(a co-existence scenario). but sending emails to mailboxes on mdaemon is been queued on the exchange at intervals and delivers after a long period of time. sending from mdaemon to exchange 2013 drops immediately.

    please i need your advice.
