Go into Exchange system manager
highlight the recipient policies container
on the right hand side, go to the properties of the recipient policy
then go to the email addresses tab
on the email addresses tab, make sure everyone has an SMTP address that matches the external domain..

if the external domain name is fakedomain.com
make sure there is an SMTP entry for @fakedomain.com so the RUS can supply John Smith with an email address of JSmith@fakedomain.com.

Hello All,
We are currently on an Exchange 5.5 email system.  Our company is moving to it's own email domain that will be a stand alone email domain.  Our email address will go from user.name@multinationalco.com to user.name@biglocalco.com.  We will be migrating all of the existing emails from current email system to the new system.  Is there a way to automate the changing of the email profile or will we have to touch each machine?  We currently have over 300 users so to touch all the machines can be quite time-comsuming.
Thanks for the help (in advanced)
Charlie
