Adding a domain, then changing it to the default primary domain

Hello All

I have generated my first Exchange 2007 Standard server. This is an all-on-one-server "simple" installation, so no Edge component (right?). During the install I chose a private domain name (ClientDomain.local) with the intent of adding the published external name (ClientDomain.com) afterwards and making it the default email domain.

After an apparently successful install, I added a New Accepted Domain in the Organization Configuration > Hub Transport, but it doesn't show up as a drop-down option when I create a new Recipient Configuration > Mailbox (I miss AD integration!).

What do I need to do to 1) see the .com domain new user drop down; and 2) how to make the .com the default email domain.

Thanks!

You need to add the domain as an email address policy as well as an accepted domain.

In EMC, go in to Organisation Config, Hub Transport, Email Address Policy. Choose New Email Address Policy and follow the wizard.

Thank you for that -- terse -- solution. It did the trick.

Is this the part which folks are saying wait until SP1 for the complete GUI?
