3. Change company policy to reflect names like [email protected], [email protected], etc, where DNS would resolve to the correct server. Doesn't give corporate the "email image" they are after. 4.

if you want a 'flat' public domain name space for the company, then these are your only options. as you note, #3 is a noisy heuristic, not a solution. my own view is that <sub>.company.tld (eg, us.example.com or jp.example.com) still retains essential identity homogeneity. but it's not unreasonable that an organization would want it *entirely* homogeneous. unfortunately, all public routing to email servers is based only on domain names, so the domain name has to contain differential information if differential routing is needed. ldap can only be a factor after the mail server gets the full email address. d/
