Unable to Access OWA Internally

Havent done this in awhile... I would like to know how to setup DNS so that users can access their email locally using the same url that that use externally.For example mail.mydomain.com: Currently this resolves to the public IP rather thank locally to the exchange server.

Typically I would go into dns and setup a CName calle mail for teir domain pointing to the exchange server. However the domain is not the same as the url that they are trying to connect to. For example the domain is myaltdomain.com so when I try and setup the Cname the FQDN is not consistent with the url they are trying to connect to.
1 Solution

on your internal DNS Server, create an new primary DNS zone with the same name as your external domainname (mydomain.com) even if it exists on the Internet and create a A record with the internal ip address of your OWA server. You will have to create all other records that exist on the Internet (e.g. the internal ip address of your public webserver, etc)
