Using internal names in SSL Certs

Now that we are no longer able to use internal names in SSL certs, it seems that the best "work around" is to configure microsoft exchange to use my external, FQDN. My question is, I take it I will have to reconfigure all out outlook clients to connect using "mail.company.com" instead of mail.company.local?

This is the article I'm referencing.

No, you will not have to touch the Outlook clients at all.
The internal name can still be used as the server name, because the clients do not use SSL to connect to the server. The real server name is fine.

Therefore you only have to change the web services URLs.

Autodiscover will ensure the clients are using updated settings.
