I'll try that; thanks!

A is the domain name we've used internally since founding, B is this
week's new one. In protest of the number of name changes we've had so far
(and to minimize the impact of any future ones), IT is using our original
company name for everything that's not customer-facing, and setting up the
official company name-of-the-hour to mirror the original (actual) site.

Thus, the stuffier management types and customers can use B, while
everyone else keeps with A.
