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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
