When we had this issue, we found that some clients were still pointing to a ISP DNS server, which sent the DNS request to the external DNS host.  Once we pointed them to the SBS server for DNS everything worked fine.

At first autodiscover was not working on initial setup, I changed the SSL settings in IIS for the Autodiscover and OAB VD's from Accept to Ignore, now autodiscover works. I am still getting the certificate mismatch error and now internal clients are being prompted for their credentials when in outlook

What service pack are you on? Password prompt issues were solved by E2k7 SP2 and SP3 is out now.

You are getting that message because Outlook can't find or contact the availability service. Test your outlook autoconfiguration (hold down the CTRL key and then right click on the outlook icon in the bottom right of your screen and there should be a "Test Autoconfiguration " option. Run the autodiscover test and then look for the availability URL in the results

Ok I ran the test and I am actually unable to run it because it keeps prompting me for my credentials?
I am very close to installing SP3 for exchange but I am concerned about problems afterward as I don't even have SP2 on yet.... thoughts anyone?

Put SP3 straight on and then if you are still having password prompt issues let us know

yes, you can skip SP2. The service packs are not incremental. you can put SP3 straight on plain Exchange 2007.
