We have two servers with Windows 2008. One exchange Cas server and one backend server. Webmail, active sync works great. The cas server certificate is a webserver ssl certificate from thawte.  The only name in the certificate is mail.domain.net. The problem is that we cant get Outlook anywhere to work from outside the office.
Can it be OAB that creates the problem? We get a lot of errors in the event viewer.
Have anyone experienced something familiar?

Disable IPv6, edit the hosts file to reference the IPv4 addresses of the box and restart the server.

Example of what needs to be added to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (obviously replacing the IP address and the hostname)

10.0.0.1   server
10.0.0.1   server.domain.com

It seems that the problem is that we don't have a certificate with required Subject Alternative Names. Another way is to set up a SRV record in the DNS a use the ssl web certificate.
