Add CNAME record on DNS for Exchange 2007

I was told by the external consultnat to add a CNAME record to our exisiting domain as a requirement to order to move to Exchnage 2007. What is the rationale behind this ??

Thanks

Hi,

Did the consultant explain what server the CNAME would be for? The only thing I could think of to create the CNAME in your Internal DNS server would be to configure the autodiscover service. I am not saying there are not other reasons though.
