I just installed a UCC SSL certificate from Godaddy on my exchange server. My internet/External owa users get no problems when accessing owa but when we try internally to access owa we are getting the the security certificate was issued for a different website address.

on the internet we are using the FQDN but internal we use the Cname to access it. https://email/owa

Thanks

Is your CNAME on the cert?  Whatever you type in the browser address field, has to be in the cert as a subject alternative name (SAN).

you have to have them browse to the fully qualified domain name that is on the certificate.  if you cannot do this from inside then you need to add a DNS entry to your internal DNS server that points your FQDN to the internal address of your domain server.  example

assume your internal ip for the exchange server is 192.168.1.1
assume your external ip for the exchange server is 10.1.1.1

outside hosts go to mail.exchange.com/owa which brings them to you external IP 10.1.1.1
inside hosts go to mail.exchange.com/owa which brings them to your internal ip 192.168.1.1

Follow my uide here to setup an internal forward lookup zone that matches the hostname your users use from ourside your network.

So if from outside they connect to mail.domainname.com then configure a forward lookup zone called mail.domainname.com and point it to the internal IP address if your exchange server.
