Created new DNS zone to allow intranet OWA access; using URL OWA accessed from internet

I recently posted a question about how to allow for my users to access OWA from our intranet using the same URL they access OWA from over the internet.  The solution I received works great, for accessing OWA.  The solution was to create a new forward lookup zone, then create an A record pointing to my internal exchange server.  For example;  users can now go to https://mail.example.org/exchange from the intranet and access our OWA.  But, this created another issue for me.  

I created the forward lookup zone, example.org, added the A record for mail (mapped to internal IP).  Our website is hosted outside of our organization, so when my users go to access http://www.example.org, they receive the message the page cannot be found.  How can I continue to let my users access OWA using the https://mail.example.org/exchange and be able to access the externally hosted http://example.org website?

You can add an "A Host" record called WWW in the same forward lookup zone that you created your MX record.  Use the IP address of the web server that is hosting your website.
