After checking authentication, give a try on the encryption level of Forms Based authentication. Set it to None

I thinks here's the problem.  The genious who names the server used an _ in its name which causes an issue.  The way around this is a created a CNAME record called mail to refer to the exchange server in DNS so when asked for the common name when issuing the certifuicate I used cname.domain name.  As long as I got to https://cname/exchange I can log in.  Does any of this make sense?  Is there a way I can redirect everything coming form https://server_1/exchange to https://cname/exchange?

yes, you just need to have the appropriate DNS records pointing to the IP address of your exchange server and the certificate must match the DNS record

server = server_1
DNS A record = mail.domain.com
certificate subject name = mail.domain.com
