Exchange 2013 - Outlook Anywhere proxy keeps defaulting to local exchange

I've got a new install of exchange 2013 with SSL certificate from godaddy. Since they are now not allowing .local domains from SSL issuance it's leaving me in a tough spot with a client who expects their outlook anywhere to function properly. I am going to use test1.com for the email domain and test1.local for the local domain as our examples. The certificate is for autodiscover.test1.com and mail.test1.com. I ran a digicert tool that I found that fixed outlook certificate errors outlook was getting after I installed the certificate without exchange.test1.local on it. The problem I'm running into now is that the outlook anywhere exchange proxy keeps changing to http://exchange.test1.local when I need it to connect to http://mail.test1.com. I change it and it requires restart of outlook, but it always changes back to the exchange.test1.local. This is very frustrating and SSL cert dealers are sticking it to us here in my opinion. Can anyone help me out?

You need to ensure that you have changed all of the URLs within Exchange to match the public host name. You cannot just change Outlook, as it will be corrected by Autodiscover.

Yo the man Sembee. Sorry for the delayed response. I hadn't been back out to that client until now.
