Difference between internal domain name and external domain name


I named internal name as xxx.local however we have xxx.com...now all the mailboxes are setup at bcook, bjones@xxx.local....whereas their
real world email are joe@xxx.com and bob@xxx.com

Can i setup my exchange for external domain and edit the email address in inbox etc...

Also, i have two nics card on the server...one is for internal network. What IP address should I assign to the other one? Static external IP address or what?

Go into the Exchange system manager and then go to recipients and then recipients policy.  Right click on the default policy and add new.  Choose SMTP and then add your external domain name and then set as primary.

What is the second NIC connected to?

The second NIC is connecting to nothing. I just have a DLINK router between the internet and the server. I plan on getting a firewall soon.

Are there any steps available to setup exchange in sbs2003 in detail?
This might help


Would leave the 2nd nic alone for now unless you want to do NIC teaming or connect to an application via the 2nd IP address (NIC)
