Exchange Organization Name - 2.Nov.2006 2:38:27 PM

Two quick questions:

1. Does the Exchange Organization Name need to be unique from any existing AD names?

2. Can the Exchange Organization Name begin with a Hyphen?

Many thanks in advance for any assistance.

Your Exchange org name can be anything, you can keep it the same as your AD name or not. I'm not sure about the naming convention, but I believe it does let you put in hypens, if not it will let you know during setup when you choose the name.

Funny how something so simple can be so complicated.  The name can be just about anything.  It can be the same as your AD environment, it doesn't have to match your mail domain, it is pretty flexible in every aspect except renaming it.  Without a congressional approval you really can't change the Exchange Org name once you install, so choose wisely.
