I am running Windows 2000 server Small Business edition. Originally the domain was setup as CSHF.COM and the Exchange Server handles traffic as cshfllc.com. I would like to rename the domain to CSF.COM and the Exhange Server email address to csfllc.com.

Is this possible? If so, How would I go about it? What if any would there be in the way of "gotchas" in attempting this?

Thanks,

David

Sorry, but there's no way to rename a domain if you have Exchange running (well, there are ways, but Exchange can't cope with a changed domain name). The only way would be to rebuild the domain completely.
