We are migrating from SBS2003 to SBS2011
The SBS2003 domain is: mycompany.local
We use the built-in exchange on SBS2003 for 10 mailboxes
The mycompany.com is site is hosted via 1and1.com
We use the POP3 connector to download email to the SBS2003 server
The 10 users access their email via Outlook.

The desired future state is to have this same configuration working on SBS2011.
I have stated the process "Migrate to Windows SES"
From the checklist, I completed the steps:
1. change where to store  data on destination server
2. Configure network

Since I am using an internal domain name, do I need to complete the following task:
-Configure the Internet Address --> Start the internet address wizard.

This wizard seems to be only geared to assist if your domain name is some sort of a mycompany.com address as opposed to the mycompany.local which is what we have.

I think I need to select the option:
I want to manage the domain name myself and then insert: mycompany.com as the domain name as opposed to using mycompany.local
FYI: we receive mail at addresses like: accounting@mycompany.com or bob@mycompany.com

yes you need to follow the wizards.

This wizard seems to be only geared to assist if your domain name is some sort of a mycompany.com address as opposed to the mycompany.local which is what we have.
Configure "Internet" address means it's outside your local network so you will configure with .com

I think I need to select the option: I want to manage the domain name myself and then insert: mycompany.com as the domain name as opposed to using mycompany.local
for the internet wizard you are correct (if you get an error please send a screen shot)


FYI: we receive mail at addresses like: accounting@mycompany.com or bob@mycompany.com
active directory during installation of the SBS software uses .local for DNS purposes, it assures local users will not go out into the .com domain and search for computers during logon and things like this. Once the SBS server is configured you then setup the .com domains for outside access.
