Sorry for the cross post, but unsure where to post.

The school I am with needs to migrate the SMTP domain name from a .com to
.edu. The name is owned, but not yet being used, by our parent school. We do
not host our own DNS. We also want to change our naming convention from,
first name-last inital to first inital-last name.
The question is, how can this be done without interruption and with the
least amount of administrative effort?
Running win2k and Exchange 5.5 in a NT4 domain.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Exchange Servers Admin >> .com to .edu For inbound mail, configure the Internet Mail Service's Routing Tab. Set the
.edu domain to be INBOUND (leave the .com there too).

For the email addresses, I suggest that you directory export all users to a
CSV (Ref: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q153/0/28.asp
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q148/3/39.asp
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q155/5/94.asp

You can configure site addressing as you need it with the .edu and the
first/last config.

Was done, check the users. If they need the additional SMTP addresses,
reference the above articles for import the 2nd proxy address.

Hope this helps...
