Sub domains vs. domain
Question asked by Merle Wait - July 13, 2017 at 7:01 AM

What is the downside.. or issue, 
if one were to set up subdomains processing vs. regular domain processing?
example:
   companyzy1.domain.com
        emailuser@companyzy1.domain.com
        emailuser2@companyzy1.domain.com
 
   companyAbc.domain.com
        emailuserx@companyAbc.domain.com
        emailusery@companyAbc.domain.com
'-----------------
I assume emails routes .. no big deal....
But more curious about chats, calendars....
'-------------
My assumption is that subdomains all would operate independently...
But then again, my assumptions  ... have made an 'a%%' of me before <grin>
Anyone having actual experiences.. with such, please advise.   
Thanks

They would be completely independent and separate domains. I don't believe that you can share resources with users outside of each domain. It isn't the same thing but you can create domain aliases so mail addressed to different domain names map to the same users in a domain so, for example the alias:
 
joe@companyzy1@domain.com
 
would be delivered to:
 
joe@companyabc.domain.com
