I recently installed a new exchange 2007 application in to a windows server 2003R2 64bit and the server its up and running fine, but now I was requested to change the organization name,
so the question is if I can change the organization name without rebuilding the system?
if there is anyone that can help me, I really appreciate!!!

To change the org name would mean removing all of Exchange and hacking the remains out of the domain.
