Sorry for the vague question title... not sure what exactly to call the problem!  I am new to DNS and Exchange, and I am setting up a small test environment to learn.  Currently, I have one server that serves as a Windows 2003 DC(home.chrisandandra.com) and an Exchange server.  I can send and receive e-mail just fine.  However, the e-mail addresses for my Exchange server are <user>@home.chrisandandra.com.  How can I eliminate the 'home' from the addresses?  I just want the email addresses to be <user>@chrisandandra.com.  Here is my current MX record:
chrisandandra.com 5 mail.chrisandandra.com

Thanks for the help!

In Active Directory Users and Computers on the Exchange Server, look at the email addresses tab - whatever is the default will be the address used to send mail from.  You may need to add a recipient policy to ensure Exchange knows that it handles mail for "chrisandandra.com"
