no no you're fine - change your proxy settings in 'advanced', connection options, to connect to the outside domain name like servername.web.com

it will then resolve thru the proxy

The only thing is i really need this to work via auto discover

the users that will be connecting to the service are not in anyway shape or form "Computer Literate"

at this stage removing exchange / AD and changing the domain name would not be a big problem, just lost time

is it a case that the autodiscover settings will only send the physical domain name of the server?

B HCommented:
right, autodiscover works off of a cname dns entry, you would need that public dns server to have an _SRV record called _autodiscover, pointing to servername.web.com

that way, it will autodiscover to the right address - then you just need to make sure the right ports are forwarded in your firewall to your exchange server, usually 80 and/or 443

here's an overview of how it works:

here's how to set it up on the inside of your network:

and here's how to set it up on the outside (public dns host):
