Exchange with different domain name

hi,
i have a domain name currently configured with a long name as "xyzserver" now FQDN is like "pcname.xyzserver.xyz.com.mv". because of this if i deploy exchange Server the email domain becomes "user@xyzserver.xyz.com.mv". Is there any way i can configure exchange 2007 SP3 as "user@xyz.com.mv", to make it shorter?

I need advice asap.
thanks

Sure, you can change the E-Mail address policy:
Exchange console / Organization Config / Hub Transport / E-Mail Address Policies

Be careful though: By default this will also change existing addresses. And for external mail to work you must make your DNS settinigs etc. match the domain name your going to use.

In this case you won't have to worry about the actual name.
Here's some pretty good instructions:

i got the error saying that it is invalid because it references a domain that is not an accepted domain. there is no xyz.com.mv domain i need it to be like that, is it possible without creating domain as such ?
