To just have one certificate, make add a host in your DNS pointing do your exchange server with the same name you want it to be reached from on the internet.

Exchange server name:
Host added to DNS:
Used on internet:

Certificate issued on this address:

The reason is that you have issued the certificate with the servers realhostname. If you want them to reach the server on a different name, for instance from internet, then you would have to issue the certificate in that name
Have you tried clicking the "View Certificate" and then importing it when accessing the OWA using the CNAME? Your still accessing the same server right? So they are both sites is issuing the same certificate.
