You just installed Exchange into your domain environment and your domain DNS name space is  yourDomain.local. When you full users properties you have noticed the e-mail addresses for the users fallows as


Now your company SMTP name space is and you would like to stamp all users with this Proxy Address instead of .local

in the same place make a right click and select “new accepted domain”


I will type my own domain which is “” change this as you wish, click new and finish


Now under accepted domain we have , and if we do want to get rid of first one by making right click and remove you will see you have no remove option because it is set to be default, so we will make the second one default by clicking on it and selecting it to be the default


Now lets make right click and remove it , the one we wish to get rid of


here is what we got


Now click on E-mail address policies, click on default policy

right click edit, two times next , under e-mail addresses, click edit


You can double click on the @smtp25.local part and simply change this to PoxyAddress policy you wish to use



fallow the wizard and finish.


Go back to accepted domains and remove it


If you pull your users you will see the new ProxyAddress is the default
