Exchange 2010 Setup - Primary SMTP Address

So I have recently set up a new install of Exchange 2010.  When I create mailboxes from users in AD the Primary SMTP is myname@myinternaldomain.local  

I think it should be myname@ExternalDomainWheremxRecordIs.com

Is there something wrong with my set up or is the primary smtp address correct because it's sending mail through the Exchange server?

Thanks,
JOe K.

You can change that by setting up a policy in exchange for new mailboxes to have a certain @mydomain.com etc.  

It all depends on how you setup your exchange server.  You can add your domain as an accepted domain, then create a policy to apply to new users created.

I changed the policy and it worked!

Where would an ever need a me@internaldomain.local email address for users?

.local only can works for your internal network or you can also send mails to some globally domains to outside world. But you can't receive mail on your local address from outside.
