Would there ever be a conflict with having 2 A records point to the same IP address. For example Autodiscovery and webmail? I have historically kept them separate but now I am with a new company and am going through their Exchange environment

No problems at all - you can have dozens of names all pointing to the same IP if you want to.

For exchange it is ok.

For websites or other A records it is recommended to have only one A record, and the reset of records (if needed) are Cname (alias) records points to the A record. The reason behind that is when you need to change the IP address, you will change only one A record and the Cnames will be pointed (indirectly) to the new IP address instead to change all A records to point to the new IP address.
