Exchange 2010 - specifying domain

Hi All,

I'm setting up my first Exchange 2010 server.  I'm wondering if I have to manually specify the external Internet domain anywhere.

I remember specifying it when I first set up Exchange (is there anywhere I can verify that?), but do I have to enter it anywhere else?  I know I had to set up Send and Receive Connectors manually.  

There's a section in Server Configuration > Client Access called Configure External Client Access Domain.  Do I need to add anything in there?

Thanks in advance,

We have a for our external and company.local for our internal.

Which should I put in the Accepted domains?  Currently the .local is there by default.

since your internal and external domains are not the same you want obviously your users to be able to send/receive emails using the external one i.e.

1. add to your accepted domains and set it as authoritative
2. change your email address policy so it gives as primary smtp address to all your users
