SBS2008 domain name change

Please can you help we have changed our domain name from:
 www.dog-cat-mouse.com
to
www.cat-mouse.com       (the dog quit!)

I have gone into Exchange management console and changed the email addresses to the new domain and made the new email address the "reply to" and that is working perfectly.

I would like to change the domain name within the whole system, can I just go to the:
 "getting Started Tasks" in the Windows SBS Console and run:
"Setup Internet address"
and
"Configure a Smart Host for internet e-mail"
Will that reconfigure all or will I endup with a great big mess?

Thanks
Sam

take a look at this article before you change any internal domain name, theres alot you can mess up.  You are better off rebuilding or running dcpromo to remove AD etc.
