Server.local is for the internal domain. Please include the external name as mail.domain.com in SSL certificale and configure the Exchange virtual directories and OA. Also create the host A record mail.domain.com and point it to public IP of the firewall.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You have to create it with your DNS hosting provider.

Do you have a DNS host A  ex-mail.server.local  record on public dns.
The record  ex-mail.server.local should not be in the public dns. The record should be mail.domain.com and autodiscover.domain.com and pointed to public IP of the firewall and nat to the server internal IP.

Once you create the A records you have to configure the virtual directorie with mail.domain.com

check this article from http://www.msexchange.org may help you.
