Certificate error with Outlook 2007 clients to Exchange 2007 server

I've got the following problem.

I'm currently migrating to an Exchange 2007 server. Whenever one of my Outlook 2007 clients connect to their mailbox on the Exchange 2007 server he gets the following message:

"Name on the Security Certificate is Invalid or Does Not Match the Name on the Certificate".

I've done some searching and I found the following article:

In this article they recommend creating a new website with new virtual directories and assign it to a second IP-adress which you assign to your Exchange server. On this new website you can assign a certificate with the correct name and route your internal clients to it.

Now the following problem occurs: My Exchange 2007 server is also a domain controller. And you know what they say! Don't use a multihomed domain controller in your domain, because this means trouble!

So, does anybody have any idea how I can make my Outlook 2007 clients connect to their Exchange 2007 mailboxes without breaking down my Outlook web access and Mobile Access clients?

Kind regards,
