Changing addresses

On August 17, 2005, in Exchange, by

Recently two questions from the mailbag came in about changing the domain name of the server because the firm’s name changed or the email address needed to change.


But here’s the thing… you don’t need to change the name of the domain or the server.  It doesn’t matter what those are named.


Go to the ‘Connect to Internet Wizard’ and rerun it…and while there, enter the new domain name when the wizard prompts you and enter any new SMTP or POP info.


Voila… your email will be ‘renamed’ painlessly and you don’t need to change a thing on your Server domain.


Run the wizard……Go with the wizard…. trust in the wizards…..


….Luke, trust the force….. [still like Star Wars IV [my number 1] the best…..

    Speaking of domain names…. what’s your preference as far as whether or not the internal domain name matches the public domain name?

    I’m tending towards a different, neutral internal domain name for companies of the type where the external domain is tied to names of the owners… and where that ownership can change relatively often. People can get touchy about having an "old" name for their network.
