Exchange 2010, currently a single server system, having issues with the External Autodiscovery, showing Internal FQDN

So currently I have an exchange server up and running, we can send and receive mail but having issues connecting external users cleanly to the server via outlook anywhere.

When autodiscover finds the server and inputs the server name in outlooks "external Server" field it shows the internal FQDN of the server:

Servername.domain.local

not Mail.domain.com,  

I have some certificate changes to make but because I am able to connect when the External Name is input manually i don't think the cert issues I have are a problem that this is causing.

Thank you for any direction you can afford me.

open Exchange Management Console -> Server Config -> Client Access -> select your sever from the right hand side and on the tool box (more on the right) under disable outlook anywhere you have a properties click it and go to the outlook anywhere tab
