I can log onto OWA  using my account followed by either the local domain name or the actual web address.
Is there away to set exchange that you can log on using only the local domain name which is not known by outside persons

Here is example how I can logon.

 localdom\myaccount

mail.domain.com\myaccount

Hi,
 
Please just change the internal address of the OWA by implementing the below steps:
 
In EMS, run set-owavirtualdirectory –identity “server name\owa (default web site)” –internalurl:https://mail.domain.com/owa
 
After that, run get-owavirtualdirectory –identity “server name\owa (default web site)” |fl server,name,internalurl,externalurl command to check whether the configuration is correct.

 try to access the URL in internal computer and share the result

Anyways you do a OWAAddress\AccountName or OWAAddress\AccountEmail address ... you will have to provide the Credentials only way i can think of is use some specific Browser and Cache the Credentials for that Link

You mean in the URL? How about configuring localdom to be the host header name for the default web site? Or do you mean in the username field of the logon page? Although I've never heard of being able to use the server name as part of a logon name.
