We use Outlook 2003 sp2 and have a small LAN with 3 workstations using a

Server SBS 2003. We are set up to send emails via Microsoft Exchange Server

and never send email to ourselves, only to "external" addresses in the

outside world ! When we send emails to outside the LAN they always show the

local email address, ie roger@ournetwork.local so anyone replying to our

emails will get an "address unknown" message. How can I change the return

address on our emails so that it shows our external address and not the

internal local address. I have been told it can be done, but I can't figure

it out ... Roger

There will probably some wizard for this and someone with better

(some) knowledge of SBS may come in and give you guidance but.... In

normal Exchange land you can start Exchange System Manager and drill

down to Recipients then Recipient Policies. Edit the one that's there

(there should be only one).

Change the domain to what you want it to read and you're done. The

addresses will be re-written.

The .local is not needed at all, even if you guys do choose to send

internally at some point so don't worry about it. If you are thinking

"but...." at any stage, stop. You don't need to think any further :)

As Mark rightly mentioned there must be some wizard in SBS 2003. SBS 2008

certainly has wizard configuration. I am marking this post in the SBS group

for some expert in SBS 2003 to respond.

Hi Rajiv, Roger, and Mark:

This is a duplicate post of that three posts below this one. Below is the

answer. If there are further questions, it would be good to confine the

thread to the SBS group.

To set the default external email address you run the CEICW (second item on

the page, can't ever remember what it stands for) from the to do list in

Server Management.
