I am still in my testing phase for exchange 2007 and now i am at the SSL part of it and not sure what names i need to register. Here is where i am at with that.

Purchased cheap Multiple Domain UCC from for $60

What i want to do is Autodiscover, External OWA, Internal OWA,  Mobile Phones, i think that is it.

External DNS =

Internal Domain = testdc.testdomain.local   <--domain controller
                                  testserv.testdomain.local  <-- exchange server

Thanks for any help.

Your list looks fine. You may want to include: just for kicks for mobile users, but not really necessarily.

Otherwise, so long as you have mail, exchange, and you should be all set. Make sure your internal server name is specified as well as listed in your Internal Domain list.

You don't need the domain controller in the list.

All you need is (which is OWA, MX record, Windows Mobile etc)
server.domain.local (server's FQDN inside your network)
server (server's NETBIOS name)

Nothing else.

Do you think i can use the following tool (Wizard) even though i did not buy a cert from them? I found it through another post.

Thanks again
