This might be a stupid question but have never had to setup exchange from scratch, and our previous IT guy purchased SBS 2008, exchange 2007 which crashed over the weekend and i need to re-configure it, and setup active directory etc, etc.... The problem is that i'm pretty sure its not setup correctly, all user accounts on the box are setup to the local domain name and not the website domain name I.E. NewUser@Domain.local, where they should be NewUser@Domain.com... Can some one help me configure exchange so i can add the domain.com to exchange 2007???? I've been surfing about 2 hours now and can't find anything, and our business is completely down until i can get this backup and running

You need to run the "Setup your internet address" wizard in the SBS Console.

it's normal to have the domain.local but running the wizard will add the domain.com to the users as well

Hello,

This is correct basically he / she has added the local domain and not specified the public domain email address via Recipient Policies

When you run through the wizard make sure you select: "I want to manage the domain name myself"

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

You can still login using the @ local domain  as long as the account/email address tab in AD has the smtp entry for email@ domain.com

Please don't use the recipient policies, the configuration in SBS should all be done through the wizards in the console.

If you don't use the wizards then that's when things start to go wrong.
