    Change the targetAddress from the "Exchange General" tab. Click on the
    "Modify..." button. That should also change the primary SMTP proxy
    address.

    Hi Nick,

    You can also create a new mail enabled contact for the new external address, then change Forwarding Address property of mailbox.

    You don't mention what you changed or how you changed it.
     
    Assuming it's a mail-enabled contact, the targetAddress and the
    primary SMTP proxy address should be identical and it's the
    targetAddress property that's used as the destination when you send
    e-mail to the contact.

    double clicked the email address and changed it.

    clicked OK then tried a to send a test email to the internal address.
