We just installed Exchange 2007 on our single-domain network. Our domain is "company.NET." However, all of our current email addresses are "user@company.ORG." How must I configure Exchange so we can continue to use all of existing email addresses?Additionally, our current server is a POP3 server---is there any additional configuration because of this?

You need to configure Exchange 2007 so it can accept mail for your domain too. The guide at details the procedure you must follow.

I wouldn't use Exchange as a POP3 server - while this won't affect what you are actually talking about in this question, there are much better ways of connecting to Exchange than using POP3: RPC over HTTPS, MAPI through a VPN, Outlook Web Access etc.

Awesome. Thanks for the link, it was very helpful. We are working on the configurations now. However, as far as Receive Connectors go, should we modify the two default connectors to reflect the other Autoritative domain, or do we create new Receive Connectors altogether?

I'd modify them to reflect the other domain.
