Not sure how to ask this question, but all the users in AD have an email address as

email@office.somecompany.com and I would like it to be email@somecompany.com for all the users.

How do I change this globally?

Assuming that you have got exchnage installed you need to create mailboxes for the users, either when you create the user, or subseqently and then configure your email client (ouutlook?) to use the exchnage server.
