Sorry for the (I'm quite sure) very "noobish" question, but... I have set up a domain (let's call it domain.local), and it's the first time I've ever had to set up a domain other than a ".com". My fear is that we will end up blacklisted as the CName is domain.com, but points to this server. If you use the MX Lookup tool, it would return:

HELO mxtoolbox.com - DIAGNOSTIC TEST - See http://www.mxtoolbox.com/Policy.aspx

501 5.5.4 Invalid Address [47 ms]

HELO mxtoolbox.com
250 server1.domain.local Hello [123.45.67.89] [47 ms]
MAIL FROM: <test@mxtoolbox.com>
250 2.1.0 test@mxtoolbox.com....Sender OK [62 ms]
RCPT TO: <test@mxtoolbox.com>
550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for test@mxtoolbox.com [47 ms]
QUIT
221 2.0.0 server1.domain.local Service closing transmission channel [47 ms]


How do I make that last line report server1.domain.com instead of .local?

It's perfectly ok to have a .local AD address, both in terms of your AD and in terms of your UPNs.

However, it is impossible to have a .local SMTP address. Go into Exchange System Manager and drill down to policies and recipient policies. Edit the policy and change the .local to whatever your SMTP domain is.

That will result in all your addresses getting usable and legitimate addresses.

Well... that's not really the setting I'm concerned with... the e-mail addresses are already set to domain.com for the generation rules.

I *think* I just figured it out, though... but I'd like to make sure. Would I just change the "domain.local" setting under "Default SMTP Virtual Server"-->Properties-->Delivery-->Advanced--> FQDN to "mail.domain.com"? I've got it changed, and the MX toolbox reports the correct domain now, but I just want to make sure I did it correctly at this point.

That was the correct thing to do. That setting controls the FQDN used in the banner response you tested.

The path you have stated should never have been changed in the first place. Leave it as you now have it. I apologise for where you were directed in the first instance but you didn't mention that part.
You should be good to go now.
