SBS 2008 Domain Prefix Remote

Small Business Server 2008 assigns the domain prefix “remote” when using the Setup Your Internet Address Wizard. I know this can be changed within the advanced settings but i have left it as default. I now want to purchase an SSL certificate from Thawte for OWA & OMA. If i want to use signed to my SSL, do I have to changed the prefix within the Setup Your Internet Address Wizard from “remote” to “webmail” ?

So what you are telling me is that i cannot have my SBS 2008 internal access to owa as and external access to , they both have to be the same?

I have used for sometime now on our sbs 2003 server and want to continue using this. I have read on  SBS forum that some Microsoft updates will require or worse assumes it is and will fail if not. I'm trying to trying to prevent possible future head aches by changing it.

I have also read that i will possible have to generate the certificate request using the Exchange Power Shell for multiple client access Host Names?
