Thanks, John, for pointing this out to me- I had not even thought of it.
I see that Microsoft use .msft in their presentations.  Anyone know what
the "ft" part stands for?

When I upgraded to AD from NDS I did not really understand the
ramifications of using one of my public domain names as our AD domain
name, nor did the service integrator I engaged.  Nor did they realise
that exchange should not be installed on a DC.  As such I am now
planning a domain rename, as well as demoting the DC with exchange to a
member server,
