My company is being sold and I have to reconfigure the exchange environmemt with new e-mail addresses. I will be setting up a new domain controller (Server 2003 SP1) and I have to change all the addresses to the new domain. I know that users are going to want to keep their old e-mails from the old domain. My question is, short of creating .pst files for all the old mailboxes and then adding them as personal folders in the new environment, how do I go about changing the e-mail server to reflect the domain name change?

I would suggest creating a new email server. Use ADMT to move all of your users to the new domain. Setup all of the users to have an Exchange mailbox. Then use exmerge to move the mailboxes to the new mail server. They will be unable to reply to any of the internal emails directly (the exchange address will no longer exist), but any external emails will still work. They'll need to forward a reply to an internal email address.
