    Changing the name of an Exchange 5.5 server

    One of our customers will not accept mail from our
    exchange 5.5 server. They claim the name is invalid
    becuase of a "_" character in the name (e.g., DOM_S0).

    Can the server name given out by SMTP be easily changed,
    or does anyone know how to rename a exchange 5.5 server??

    I could put in an SMTP gateway server, but I don't want to
    avoid that if possible.

    Bryan,

    The only way to rename an Exchange server, is Exmerge all the data out, copy
    the Public Folder information to PST and then to uninstall and reinstall
    Exchange.

    Re: Changing the name of an Exchange 5.5 server

    What might work is the following:

    Change the DNS name of the server so that when it connects to other the
    server it's dns name is correctly formatted. This doesn't require the
    changing of the netbios name of the machine.
