Setting up exchange

Hello again,
Is there a best practice for setting up Exchange? Basically i have installed Exchange2003 on a DC running W2K3 std. I just want to make sure it is set up 110% for when i change the MX record tomorrow. They are using their ISP for emails right now so i am creating distribution groups in AD and creating mailboxes for the users through AD. I need to make sure i am doing all i should do.

Thanks

When you say ISP email do you mean pop?

Have just created a user (test) in AD and created mailbox. I just wanted to make sure that i could send emails at least so far. But when opening Outlook on a client now with my test outlook profile all I am getting is the MS Exchange is unavailable. Can anyone suggest anything???
Thanks in advance.

Yes. I am now actually getting NDR "#5.1.8 smtp; 553 5.1.8 <test@domainname.local> Domain of sender address test@domainname.local does not exist."  The addresses currently at the ISP are .co.uk so will i have to go through Exchange and update everyones email address to .co.uk as opposed to .local??

In Exchange you have an address of your organization domain such as subdomain.domain.com which is not the actual address to send out or recieve. Your correct address which you will have to apply to everyone or create a policy for setting up new accounts should be both subdomain.domain.com and domain.com with domain.com as the default reply.
