I had a business change thier name about a year ago, apart of that change included the legal requirements to remove any and all mention of the previous company name. This included makeing the required changes to SBS and exchange email domain names. No big deal.

However, today, one of the admins noticed that upon creating a new user in the SBS 2011 console, the old email domain is listed, and not the new one. If it's possible to change this, I need to, but have been unsuccessful in figuring out how and where to do this of finding any info about it.

I have attached a screenshot of what/where I am talking about for reference.

Hi,

All you need to run in SBS console is the "Set my Internet Address wizard " again and change to your primary internet domain.
You cannot change your internal domain at all.
You can also do this system wide or on a user base in the Exchange Management Console.
Hope that helps,
Olaf

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You could manually Change the Exchange Server 2010 Email Address Policies or you could just run the wizard "Set up your Internet address" in the SBS Console. Second Approach is easier.

Certainly know that I cannot change the internal domain name  (i.e. "whatever.local") which is fine, no need for that. Just wanted to change that little piece. Before I do that however, what effect if any will it have on certificates / users connected to exchange via outlook?

If you do it manually, then you have the complete control, so I'd advise you to do that. Here is a pretty good guide:

The wizard does a Little bit more: It creates a new DNS Record for the internal IP with the public Domain, etc...

If you use  self issued certificate:
Internal users: No change,
external user: need to reimport the certificate from public downloads . (Just run the .exe file)
If you use a public certificate: Run the certificate wizard in the console an choose: "import an existing certificate"
Very easy.
Let me know if you need further explanations.
