Exchange Server resolution

Hi guys,

My exchange server is set up via public dns as:
mail.mycompany.com

When I us an outlook client to set up and exchange server connection from outside my network, I enter the mail.mycompany.com and my username for the exchange server.
Then it reolves the server name to: servername.mycompany.local which is the server's internal name.

I am using Outlook 2003 vs. Exchange 2003, with ISA 2994 in the way, publishing Exchange RPC via port 135 (the default).

Any ideas?

You don't really have a question there... but I'm assuming that you aren't getting to the server?

The protocol is RPC over HTTPS... which means that you are going in over port 443, not 135.  

Full instructions for this are here:  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/isa/2004/plan/exchage2003.mspx

Please advise if you need further info though.

What you are seeing is normal behaviour and cannot be changed.
If you configure RPC over HTTPS then you would continue to see that behaviour, except the Outlook connection is proxied through the mail.domain.com address.

Otherwise not really sure what you are asking.
