Domain Expired

My network domain subscription expired; I've renewed it but don't want to wait the 1-2 hours for our exchange server to see it.  Can I manually do something so the server will see the domain.  We have a Windows 2003 server.

    No - whatever you do won't propagate things any faster on the internet.  I'd suggest purchasing the domain for multiple years and adding a reminder in your Outlook config as a task or event that reminds you well before it expires to renew it.

    A really dirty way would be to add the host name to your hosts file on the Exchange server.  I say that but also advise against it, its dirty and you'd have to remember to clean it up afterwards.
