You can do it through RUS, update your RUS with the correct address to get all users updated.

As long as your internal ad domain name is not something that another company owns (like microsoft.com), you don't have to change it.

You can have yourcompany.local as your internal ad domain and yourcompany.com as your emailaddress. That is how everyone works and Exchange can handle it.

Why do you want to change anyway?

Today is only my second day. Our internal domain name is totally different from echange. i.e. comapnyzero.local (domain) and user@comp0.com (exchange). I want to change the domain name to match the exhcnage because we have business cards and everything else published with the exchange naming convention. We only have once DC. Whats the easiest way to do this? What are the repercussions?

having company.local and user@company.com as email address is fine. there is nothing wrong in it. To be frank, that is how it should be.

What are you trying to say in ""we have business cards and everything else published with the exchange naming convention"""??

Why do you want to give your internal domain details in your business card? Can't understand..

You can rename the domain, but it involves a lot of work for no benefit whatsoever.
