Hi Experts,
I have a small network, one 2003 DC (file and print server) and 15 workstations. I have decided adding a seperate windows 2008 R2 with exchange 2010 and I did. Now I am able to send and receive an emails without any problem. However, I have an issue that is certificate. Since I didn't expect the exchange server, I used domain name abc.com (for example) but acutual domain name is abcxyz.com so I got a certificate from godaddy.com for abcxyz.com but abc.com. This gives me some issue. First I am getting security warning whenever I open outlook. I just hit yes or no then it opens outlook no problem. I also realized that out of office assistant is not working for all workstations. I think this is related to the security.
What is my best solution for this at this moment? I cannot reinstall both servers.
Do I have to install ceriticate server on exchange server? If so, please let me know how to.
Thanks in advance

create an entry in your internal DNS server 'autodiscover.domain.com' pointing to your exchange server

You dont need to re-install server or install certificate server.

Get a proper certificate from godaddy and install it in Exchange. - Create a new cert request from Exchange with correct domain info and that will solve your issues.

OOF issue is because of the wrong certificate/configuration of urls.

The problem is that I couldn't get a certificate for abc.com from godaddy.com because this is not my domain.

You don't need abc.com, get one for your own domain and reconfigure all exchange urls.

If the error is only internal, run get-clientaccessserver | fl name, *uri

The autodiscoverserviceinternaluri should point to a url in your cert and your internal DNS should resolve it.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

Create a new zone in your internal DNS server name it as abcxyz.com as create an A record 'mail.externaldomainname.com' pointing to your exchange server.

Then as mentioned above change all your URLs .

Please ignore the above post.

Create a new zone in your internal DNS server name it as abcxyz.com and create an A record 'externalname.externaldomainname.com' pointing to your exchange server.

Then as mentioned above change all your URLs .

Attached a sample command for 2 servers exchange environment. You make the changes and make both internal and external the same.
