Is it possible to change the default domain name in SBS server, and how?  If not is it possible to add an additional domain name for the server to use with Exchange for external email purposes?

Thanks

A planning error has caused us to name our SBS domain (somename) the same  as a name that someone else has registered with internic (somename.com).  So all of our users have had internal email accounts setup with this default domain name (workshere@somename.com)

If possible I would like to change the default name to something that we can register with internic and setup mail accounts accordingly.
