The domain name must be a non-existent domain. You must use the same domain for the remote domain, the mail contact, the Send connector, and the journal rules.

For more information about remote domains, see the article on the Microsoft TechNet site that corresponds with your version of Exchange. For example, for Exchange 2013, see "Remote domains",
