Security alert in Outlook after purchasing SSL certificate

I just purchased a SSL certificate from GoDaddy so I could get my Windows Mobile 6 device to sync with Exchange.  Now I keep getting a "Security Alert" because the name on the certificate doesn't match the name on the site.  I only get this on the desktops running Outlooks.  When accessing the web or syncing with my mobile it appears to be fine.

Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

At first glance this looks great!!  We are running a mix of Outlook 2003 and 2007.  Yes, I have Exchange 2007.

Most of the users don't have OWA login privileges.  Is this going to matter?

Thanks for the quick reply!!

No...you should only see this in 2K7 version as it uses the Autodiscover service in Exchg 2K7 (2K3 doesn't...wasn't available then).

I read through the document and got a little nervous.  
Just for clearification;  current internal domain is server2-exch.localdomain.local
external domain is: webmail.externaldomain.com

I ran the get-clientaccessserver and it returned server2-exch    (no further address)

I also read the "Important note" that states: "These steps assume that a host record exists in the DNS to map the FQDN that you specify to the IP address of the CAS server"

In this case, it points to the IP of the router which port forwards appropriate request back to the private IP.  So am I going to need to add a host record to my DNS for the external site to point to the local IP?

I can't afford for this to break.  Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks,

You are not going to need any further DNS records. You should be good to go there.
