Sharepoint 2010 incoming email

I'm trying to set up incoming email on Sharepoint 2010 and I'm having a problem.  The instructions say to use the WFE server's FQDN for the address space.  Is this the only way?  Can I not set up incoming email to work with the same email domain as my Exchange server organization or do I have to set up a subdomain?

This is a 500 pt question.  Short answer, you can use your regular domain, but have to connect it to the WFE's smtp domain.

Thanks, this helps but it seems to not address one part for me since I'm using Exchange 2010.. I'm not sure how to set it up so that the emails sent to Exchange will also be routed to the Sharepoint server's smtp server as well since its the same domain.. and also when I mail enable a list, the "Mail Contact" created in exchange sets an email address using the Sharepoint server FQDN as the domain and doesn't apply the default recipient policy.

Actually, the email is getting to the Sharepoint library successfully but the remaining issue is that I have to manually set the Mail Contact created in Exchange to use the default policy

The problem it's having seems to be related to the issue described here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010setup/thread/cf7903a7-c95a-401a-a6a0-b946ca667b54.  Sharepoint is creating a legacy contact and so the policy cant be applied unless first manually converted.  The article suggested within this article though doesn't give a solution for it
