I am recently installed Outlook 2007 on my laptop for evaluation, I am using it to connect to my Exchange 2007 SP1 server.  My Exchg 2K7 has a SSL certificate which allow access via OWA or RPC over HTTPS from internet.  The SSL cert is using valid internet URL.

The local server name of my Exchange is called "EX2K7.COMPANY.LOCAL", when I start Outlook 2007, I received a Security Alert window of my certicate.  The following is the content of the pop up window.

ex2k7.company.local

Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others.  However, there is a problem with the site's security certificate.

        The security certificate is from a trusted certifying authority.

        The securiity certificate date is valid.

        The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.

Do you want to proceed?

I can press "Yes" button to start my Outlook but how can I get rid of the alert window.

I understand that it is because the SSL site name is not exactly the same as my local domain name on server.  Is there any way that I can co-exist both of them at the same time?

ex2k7.company.local is used for local LAN.
email.company.com is used for internet

Currently, the "email.company.com" is used on my SSL certificate.
