Exchange 2007 and default smtp

hello, I setup a new 2003 server with Exchange 2007. It seems to be working but I have a problem with the default email address. My domain was setup as <domain>.local. Therefore, my Exchange 2007 server is setting the default smtp extension as .local. I found out how to add another .smtp address for a single user but I cannot find out how to make my .NET domain the default rather than the .LOCAL as the default. How can I do this globally and for a single user? I've tried the help settings but even when it mentions the email policy editor I can't figure out how to get there.

Open EMC- Org-> Mailbox
Select the tab EAP (email address policy)
Create a new policy with the address you want and set is a primary

Note- you need to configure the Accepted domain policy first -
create an authoratative domain with the name you want

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Hey, I think I did it. I created another user and now the default address for that user is @domain.net. Thanks for your help!

In the same area create a new accepted domain policy
Just follow the wizard
Add the name that you want as the user Primary

Lets say X.local and Y.com are the names and I want Y.com to be the primary for each user

Create a new Accepted domain policy
Start the wizard
--give it a name
--type y.com in the domain section
--mark the radius authoratative
--Click new
--click finish
Now select email address policy
--new
--Name
-- mark what applies (sounds like for you all recipient types)
--Next
-- you can leave this deafult unless you want to use a filter
--Next
-- In the Email address section click ADD
--You should be able to browse to the newly created Accepted domain policy
   select it and add the deafult one with the .local
--OK, Next,Apply.. finish

Btw, if you don't mind me asking... On the Accepted Domain policy, is there any reason why I should keep the <domainn>.local? I will never send email to this extension. The valid extension is .NET.
