2003 Active Directory Domain and .local ext email issues

I have a domain called business1.local and when i create a user in the AD windows 2003 auto assigns the users email address to be username@business1.local. This causes an issue with some internal apps that uses the AD for the email information (for email notifcation). When the internal app tries to send the user an email it trys to send it to username@business1.local, which isnt valid. the valid address is username@business1.com. how can i fix it so that when a new user is created it creats the email address as username@business1.com. And is there an easy way to fix the current 80+ users i have created already?

Unfortunately, we aren't using exchange. However, we simply added .local as a alias of the domain and that worked. Thanks though.
