New Client SBS2003 Exchange setup

I acquired a new client that is running a SBS2003 server. They host their email outside with a 3rd party which is really screwing up the email. I recommended that they bring their email in house. I have a simple question. The previous Tech setup the server using a .LOCAL domain. Their email addresses have a .com domain extension. Seems as though he setup email accounts on the server but never used them. The email address listed next to their profile says. user@mydomain.local. I went into the users profile and changed that to user@mydomain.com. I checked the settings on the server and they seem correct. I checked the SMTP Connector and the FQDN was computername.mydomain.local, Now I'm pretty sure this name does really matter. But I'm hoping that the server will accept emails coming from mydomain.com. Am I correct with this assumption?

Run the SBS wizards (internet connection wizard) and put the FQDN in when prompted, this will setup exchange for you correctly.

Ok I need to add to this post. I get a feeling the previous IT person didn't use the wizards to setup the users profiles. When I log into Remote Web Workplace as one of the users they don't have the link to access there remote email. Also when I type https://mydomain/exchange/user I get the log on screen but none of the users can login except for the administrator. Need help here. I feel like I stepped into a big pile of stuff here. I hate the Geek Squad.. They are the ones who did this....

You need to run the Connect To The Internet Wizard first (CEICW). This should prompt you for the external domain name at some stage. Once this is done, check to make sure each user has an e-mail address for the external domain under their properties tab. It terms of loging into OWA. You need to give each user permission to access the OWA. You do this under one of the tabs in the user properties as well. I assume that you know how to setup the outgoing SMTP Connectors and MX Records etc?
