-------------------------------------------------------The dreaded .local rears 
its ugly head again. People really should stop
doing that and use a split DNS. It would avoid so many problems, esp for

> When we upgraded our DC, we switched our internal domain to gsi.local.
> We kept OWA the same (mail.graphicsolutions.com. OWA works great.
