SBS exchange server settings

i need to know how to change the email setup for all users in exchange 2007 SBS. When the server was configured it would not let me change the email to .com it kept it as .local. Email routes out but unless i can change the users email address to .com no email will route in. i need to get this resolved before monday if possible. The system is a SBS 2008 server running exchange 2007. As it stands now all user email addresses are (username@domain.local) and they need to be (username@domain.com). Any help will be appreciate.

The best is to run the Internet Configuration Wizard, which should take care of you mail domain as well, but you can also do it manually through Exchange Management Console. Under Organization Configuration, go to Hub Transport, be sure to add domain.com as Accepted Domain. Set it to authorative if this is the only server for this mail domain. Then go to E-mail Address policies tab, and then you can either add a new policy, or just change the one that is there. Add domain.com, and addjust that so it is equal to domain.local except for the domain name and be sure to set it as Reply. Apply this and you should be fine
Have you completed the Internet address wizard in the SBS Console?

Alternatively in Exchange Management Console under Organisation Configuration you should see Accepted Domains tab, check that your .com domain is listed and is authoritative.

Then under the email addresses tab check your default policy what is specified here?

Will it let you add a new policy?

Didn't run the wizard where is that Iust have missed it during the setup
With SBS you should always use the wizards.  It's when we don't use the wizards that things stop working.

You will find all the wizards in the SBS Console (should be a shortcut on the desktop)

Run through them all in order and it should set everything up for you.
