That's excellent to hear Matt.

The loopback address sounds normal. I administer Windows SBS boxes and best practise with these is to specify a single DNS entry, which should point to the SBS box itself. I normally enter the servers IP address, but when I go back in later a lot of boxes tend to have set. Windows is probably changing it after it realises it is it's own address. Perhaps they found people would change their IP and forget to update the DNS entry, or perhaps it's slightly faster to use the loopback address.
