    i guess its best to consult the same with GoDaddy as you might need to create a new cert from the server with the records and get them with a cert.

    thanks Rancy.
    Sorry if I  wasn't clear enough.

    I know I can drop/add SANs with GoDaddy but I was wondering from the Exchange point of view if I will achieve my goal.

    Is it really necessary to include external DNS (MX record) on a SSL certificate?

    Accepted Solution

    In answer to your question, yes. I personally would have configured your certificate as follows: - Certificate name - SAN
    servername.domain.local - SAN
    servername - SAN

    Make sure your MX record points to or any other friendly name. This name doesn't need to be on your SSL certificate.

    The following are not required, based on a typical scenario
    autodiscover.domain.local - Not required - Not required

    When you add the new certificate back into your Exchange server, Exchange won't see it, as you need to generate the private key again. You will need to perform the following:
