Exchange 2007 - SBS 2008 Domain Name

Hi,

I need to make use of an SBS 2008 server with inbuilt exchange 2007. My question is  regarding the AD domain for the company is domain.local where as their external email domain is domain.com

I can easily configure the exchange server to send and receive as domain.com instead of domain.local, however I cannot seem to work out how to configure the new name under the exchange server to allow clients to connect securely via mail.domain.com from the internet (via Outlook).

What do I need to do to exchange to enable clients to connect via mail.domain.com ? I know I need to buy a certificate, thats easy.

Thanks
Mark

Hi Mark,

Open the SBS Console and run the internet address management wizard.  This will configure Exchange for the required domain and configure the urls for client access.

Has the SBS Console been used to configure the server at all?  If not it would be worth going through those wizards.

Note:
If you are using any other domains on the exchange it will replace them as the default domain name.

Thanks I will try that. It hasn't been configured for any other domain or for anything other than a basic AD server. The business wants to use exchange now as Google Mail isn't quite cutting it.
