SBS 2011 - Exchange 2010 - Default site names

Hi there,

I've just installed SBS 2011 and it sets a default host for remote.domain.com - I want to use mail.remote.com and I've changed all of the URLs in the Exchange Management console to reflect this, however when I configure machines on the domain which use Outlook they still "look" for remote.domain.com

How do I change / see where this setting is configured?

Many thanks

Re-run the "Setup Your Internet Address Wizard" from the SBS Console> Home Page.

When you get to the Store Your Domain nformation page, click on the Advanced Settings link and in there you can change from Remote.domain.com to mail.domain.com
Probably srv record and (if applicable to this point certificate), see here:


By default the srv record is also set up as remote, it needs to be changed to reflect the new address.
