Just Installed Exchange 2007 and when setting up new mailboxes for users I noticed that the default email address is @domian.local. How do i change that to default to @user.com

Open Exchange System Manager, expand Recipient policies, right click the default recipient policy and click properties.

Create a new SMTP entry stating @user.com then set this as the default in the list.

Yes that will work but as i create new users from the active directory it always puts in the default @domain.local. I was hoping i could somehow change the default to reflect @user.com

If you modify the default recipient policy as I stated above, it doesn't matter that you create the users in Active Directory, the recipient policy will still apply. Meaning that whenever you create a new user it will add both a domain.local and a user.com email address to the account.

I am not sure where you want me to go. Exchange 2007 has a Exchange Management Console. I know that Exchange 2003 has the Systems Manager. I am not seeing where to make the change. I can go into an individual user to make the new email address. Thats what i just did.

Sorry, my bad, completely missed the 2007 part!

Exchange 2007 doesn't use recipient policies now it used EAP instead.

You can find instructions on how to create the equivalent of an Address Policy here:

In EMC, open up Org config and then hub transport.
Look for the tab Email Address policies.

Have you added the .com version to the default policy or to a new policy? Have you added your external email address to the email address policy?

Email address policy and Accepted domains are now separate - unlike with E2003/2000 where it was all wrapped up in recipient policy.

Yes that was the ticket. Needed to enter a new domain and then change the email policy
Thanks for your help.
