I am setting up SBS2003 and am ready to generate the web server certificate. I have and external web and mail server and plan to use the pop3 connector to get email. But for clients to connect to Outlook Web access do I need a FQDN that is just for my SBS? If my domain is xyz.com should I use something like sbs.xyz.com and direct it to the ip address of my SBS?
Thanks

Yep!  That's what you should do!

But then, you'll wonder why you are still using POP3 email.  And to that, there's no good answer.  The POP3 connector in SBS is there just to help get you moved over to real SMTP email.  So I'd suggest that you do that as soon as possible.
