SBS2008 External Domain name
Posted on 2010-11-29
I have been reading online about possible solutions and would like to know the following:
I do not care about the internal (.local) name for the domain, but can I change thew external name (.com) to another name. We were using a sbs2003 server and do not actually host our email-we used the pop collector to get our email (5 accounts that use iPhones). The SBS2003 server allowed me to create a server name (Server), a domain name (A-Server.com) and allowed each user to have their own email address listed (ABC@bcd.com). When we set up the SBS2008 server, we used the same configuration, but 2008 does not allow a different email ending than the domain name (A-Server.com) so the email addresses are abc@A_server.com, instead of email@example.com. What I would like to do is change the external domain name of the server to BCD.com so the email addresses will have that ending ( so that when you reply to my email sent from the server, the reply will be to firstname.lastname@example.org, not abc@A-server.com. Is this possible and if so, how would I do this? Thanks in advance for you help and suggestions.
