Local to domain to public domain...

This may sound crazy....

When are office was configured way back when (by an outside firm) our network was created on a local domain, which I'll call company.local. Our website and e-mail is hosted by our local ISP. We use exchange 2K on w2k server. It is currently configred with the local mail exchange and the (our domain name). So it seems the outside e-mails are pulled off the ISP server from each client and are then stored in the users exchange mailbox. Why it was set up like this, who knows, probably b/c we didn't have a domain name at the time.

I plan on hosting our website and cutting our ISP out of the loop and using exchange as it was intended. Obviously I will need to rename our domain from company.local to can I do this without reinstalling w2k? If i need to reinstall, how can I BU my exchange accounts? What's the best way t ohandle the downtime resulting in the transition of DNS changes with my domain registrar and ISP? Got any tips or hints? Does anyone know of where to obtain some white paper on this subject?
