Exchange tries to connect to the public domain name

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
WSBS 2008 Exchange installed. When a new user is added to the domain using Office 2007, the wizard looks for domain.com instead of domain.local.

This is a network that I took over yesterday. Oultook had been working with some problems but not perfectly (which is why I was called.) I found that the server had multiple certificates, and I deleted the ones that were not being used for the web site or RWW.

The server is an SBS 2008 and I did two things before the problem started.
1. Since it was clear that the server had not been set up using the Console, I moved the users and then used the Change Role Wizard.  I don't think this is the issue because the problem remains even if I create a new user via the Wizards.
2. I deleted several old or redundant SSL certificates.
