SBS 2008 outlook anywhere not working

I'm running SBS 2008, RWW and OWA work without any issues including no cert warning after running the cert install generated from SBS 2008. My primary issue is I can not get Outlook Anywhere to work. Outlook 2007 tries to connect to exchange server then goes to disconnected. Outlook 2010 gives me a cert name mismatch error. Another issue that may or may not be related is when I start Outlook while connected to the network I get a Security error  "name on the cert does not match" it's looking for autodiscover.domain.com and the cert SBS created is for remote.domain.com. I have rerun the fix network wizard several times with the same result.

Did you issue the cert through EMC or through the SBS Console?

It was generated via the fix network wizard in the SBS console

You are not able to create a certificate through the Fix My Network wizard to my knowledge. Is this a 3rd party cert or a self signed? If you are in outlook are you getting cert errors?

When you run fix network wizard it creates a cert and an installation package in the public download folder. This is a self signed cert and works for RWW and OWA

OK. That does not seem to be what we need. Run this script in Exchange Management Shell and paste what it returns.

Thanks. My first suggestion would be to delete your valid-active self signed cert and start from square 1. Until we know for sure-it's always better to be safe that it was added from scratch.
