I am unable to get email on my iphone when on the internal company wifi network. Works perfectly using cell data.

We connected to our exchange server using ip address and the server is unable to redirect the external ip address to the internal ip address.

You need to create a new forward lookup zone on your DNS server for your domain that has an A record that points to your internal server IP. We get a ton of calls for this and it is a pretty simple fix.

You can make an entry for mail.yourdomain.com that points to your internal server and another one for yourdomain.com that points to your websites external IP.
