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?

I've made the changes that you noted in your post but still no email is routing in. What else might i check on the recieve tab under server config under hub i have 3 connectors a client, default, and SBS FAX all enabled. just FYI

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Can you send locally using the new/correct domain name email addresses?  If you check the user account has the email address been updated with the new domain already?

On the network side, are your settings configured properly for inbound email?
1.  MX record created and correct IP address
2.  Router/Firewall is configured so that SMTP (port 25) is routing to your mail server

The .local is the standard 'internal' domain. This setting for each User is normal. (UserName@mydomain.local)
It is recommended you run 'Internet Configuration Wizard' and this will setup all the functionality you require and, if the SBS box has been setup correctly, each User will then also get the required 'UserName@MyDomain.com) additional to the .local one.
Internet Configuration Wizard actually works and us boffins hate that. We think we know better. Yeah right!
Don't forget port 25 on your router.
Use MXToolBox.com to test all your connectivity and server security. You can use telnet (your IP) :25 but that needs to be done from another IP.

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.
