Can someone explain to me, for internal & external email access when a user gets an email with a URL in the email, and they just move the cursor over the url, at the  bottom of the web browser it says:

https://webmail.xyz.com/owa/redir.aspx?   (with more after it)

When you hover over a URL is that what is supposed to show?

Does everything go through webmail.xyz.com?   It does that with internal email also, if you hover over the URL, it also says

I am confused on this.

That is a design feature of OWA, and has been in place since at least Exchange 2003.
It is to protect Exchange, so someone cannot send an email with a link that does something else. It also protects the privacy of the user.
This really old blog posting (2004) from the Exchange product team explains more:

If you want to modify its behaviour, then Lee Derbyshire (occasional poster on this site) has a method:
