Hi.
we have sat up many servers\ domains for our customers over the years and always used .local for the internal domain. Earlier dcpromo (2003) used it in its wizards examples and was told that it was a good way to keep internal and external domain seperate.
Have never had any problems with this.

Have now recently been told that it's against Microsoft recomandations to use .local internaly, and that we should use domainname.com also internaly.

Because of exchange and certificates.

What do you think?
