I have a SBS 2011 setup. I have the subdomain autodiscover.domainname.com pointing to the server public ip, and if I go to whatsmydns and type in autodiscover.domainname.com it points correctly.

When I do an nslookup autodiscover.domainname.com it points to the correct server wan ip.

When I do a nslookup srv it shows correctly the local lan ip and then it gives me information on the Linux server that is hosting the organizations website.

When I try to setup outlook off site it pulls an ssl cert from the Linux server that is hosting the organizations website?

Your internal configuration may well be different to external.
Clients off site will attempt to autodiscover to a number of predefined URLs. The first of these is the root of the domain - example.com, then autodiscover.example.com. Depending on how the remote server is setup this can cause problems with the Autodiscover process.

Do you need an SSL certificate on your public web site? If not, then remove it.

Wildcard DNS records or records that answer "domainname.com" (no subdomain, no www, no other prefix" take precedence even over autodiscover.domainname.com so if such a record exists, you will have problems.
