I'm trying to set up the FQDN on an SBS 2011 server that runs Exchange 2010. If I telent to the server on 25, it responds with mail.domain.local, but I need it to respond as mail.domain.com. I set up a new Receive Connector that uses the FQDN mail.domain.com b/c the default connector uses mail.domain.local. Then I restarted the MS Exchange Transport service, but the mail.domain.local still shows. The reason I'm doing this is that I need to set up a PTR for mail.domain.com to go to the public IP of the server and need the server to respond to mail.domain.com.
Any suggestions? Sounds more like an Exchange issue but have to mention the OS anyway :)
