Is this a new domain or an upgrade from NT4?  If this is new re-install 2k and when you do dcpromo.exe create the correct domain (mydomain.com).  You could also just install Exchange and create a policy that makes all mail addresses @mydomain.com instead of @mydomain.local.  This process varies a little by Exchange version though.

mydomain.local is for your internal domain, which should not be accessible from the Internet. mydomain.com would be used if that server would be accessible from the Internet. If you implement Exchange to obtain mail etc, then it would access the mail server you use to collect mail, and mail would still go to user@mydomain.com.
