I have exchange 2007 and currently have a ucc certificate at go daddy for my OWA but my local has a different domain name. public.domain.com/owa and my local is local.domain.com. Currently outlook client is indicating that the certificate does not match the name of the site and the name of the security is not valid.

You need to make sure both certs are the same and match or you will always get cert issues. Have a read thru http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2007/02/19/435472.aspx and make your internal cert match your remote cert.

You need to re-key your certificate from GoDaddy
http://help.godaddy.com/topic/236/article/4976

you have to enter the following domains

mail.domain.com (external facing FQDN)
autodiscover.domain.com (Create an entry in your godaddy DNS for autodiscover to point to your public IP)
mail.domain.local (FQDN of Exchange Server )
mailservername (mail server name)

You can use this tool to install it after that

Just add that domain name to your internal DNS point to your internal IP address for your server.
