I created a ssl cert for webmail.domain.com in exchange 2010 and i then started having issues with my cert looking at webmail.domain.com instead of lamail3.domain.com.  I have a new cert to config but I am not sure what domain i need to put into the cert lamail3.domain.com or autodiscover.domain.com  Or do I have to put the long url in lamail3.domain.com/autodiscover/....... .xml?

You can add more than one name in a cert. You can use a wildcard cert like *.yourdomain.com also ...

Certificates are specific to the FQDN in other words the full name.

yes, just lamail3.domain.com if that is the name you want to use.  You don't put any /name  part in the cert.

for Exchange it would be easiest to use a SAN/UCC type of cert with multiple names in it.  Are you making a self signed SSL?

You  need a SAN/UCC certificate with the following names:

autosidcover.domain.com
mail.domain.com (( this where your MX record points to).
netbios name ( ex1 )
internal FQDN ( ex1.domain.local)
webmail.domain.com
