Front End server FQDN different than FQDN of domain the server resides on?

Ok, I am setting up a front end server for our organization, I am going through the planning right now and am stumped on one thing.

Lets say my domain is GB123.com

now lets say i want to access my front end or OWA by typring https://mail.domainname.com

hence you can see I don't want to access the server with the domain name of my network.  Can the FQDN of the server be different than the domain the server is actually on?  I just don't want people to have to type the internal domain name when typing in the server name?

any help?

Sure it can!  You just have to modify the DNS 'A' records for mail.domainname.com to point to your public IP address of your exchange server.  

Cheers,
