exchange/smartphone push mail on local net

I have a win 2003 domain with a name like 'domain.local'
I also have an internet webpage like 'web.com'
Users can access Outlook through owa or push mail at 'mail.web.com'

My problem is, that users with iphones can't contact the mail server, when they are connected to our local wifi.
I tried adding a 'web.com' zone to DNS with a 'mail' host record that points to our mail-server, but then no one can access 'web.com' internet webpage from our internal net.

Is there a way to configure DNS to forward all other request than 'mail' in the 'web.com' zone on my DNS server - or is there a completely other way of enabling mail access through local wifi AND internet?

No, but you can do this the other way around.

By that I mean create a zone called "mail.web.com", add a Host (A) record with a blank name and the internal IP of mail.

It has the same effect except you're overriding mail only rather than overriding all of web.com and trying to figure out what to do with the rest.
