Exchange 2013 - certificate error

I have the following Issue

Some users have the following problem.

When they connect to the exchange server over Outlook 2013, they get the following error:

"The Name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site"

I have the domain:
Example.local and a self singed certificate for it

There is also setup a certificate for another domain TExample.com
That all the office365 accounts.

When they try externaly there are no problems. The certificate is alright. Internaly it gives me the error, It makes sense, but how do i resolve it?

Hi there,

if you have a external name of TExample.com on certificate, and it works ok when accessing from outside, then IF you can create that zone in DNS, you could simple create new SRV record for autodiscover in it. It will then connect Outlook to that name in stead of Example.local

You could also change URL.

That worked!

But at the same time it renders the server by hostname unreachable. But you pointed me in the right direction.

I'll keep working. Thanks for the help.
