SBS 2007 domain name change

I have a sbs server that has a local domain name of XYZ.LOCAL and it's exchange domain is mycompanyname.net.  I have a domain name ownership problem that is threatening my future as mycompanyname.net.  

The single biggest issue is the mx registration for mycompanyname.net.  I have users that have this email address, and all mail sends directly to that SBS server.  my question is if I come up with a suitable public name that is available, what's the "least amount of work" to adapt this new name in my infrastructure.  If I can add a domain alias to my existing that would be simple, and the original domain would not matter any more.  

If this could be done, then all my users would become:

Old Name                                      New Name
joe@mycompanyname.net             joe@myNEWcompanyname.net

is this possible, i.e. to host a new "domain name" for users, without tearing down the old name?

IF my question is not clear, I will be happy to elaborate a little... thanks for any feedback.

You can easily add additional public domains to your server.

Just re-run the Configure Internet Address wizard and this will change the external domain name.  You should wherever possible use the SBS wizards.
