Exchange Certificate Issue

We've started deploying Outlook 2010 to desktops accross the organization, and are running into an issue with the those installs.  When users open Outlook they get a Security Alert...


Information you exchange whith this site cannot be viewed or changed by others.  However, there is a problem with the site's security certificate.

The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.

Do you want to proceed?"

The issue is that the original certificate was issued for the external domain name only.  The server's Local domain name not registered.  Unfortunately the local domain was created as a .org instead of .local, and unfortunately we do not own the local .org domain.  

I'm wondering if there is a way to issue in internal certificate from the Exchange server for our local Outlook clients?

Or is there another solution?

Thanks in advance!

Very common question.
Just change everything in Exchange to use the name that you do own and have the SSL certificate for.
