I have recently migrated my exchange 2003 server to exchange 2010. It is still running on a .local domain with external email going to a .org domain. I purchased an SSL certificate for the .org domain and external email works with no issues. I am still getting certificate mismatch errors for internal outlook clients. I understand I am not able to purchase an SSL certificate for a .local domain. Is there a way to disable SSL for internal email or turn this feature off. I really don't need it for internal email to Outlook clients. I would prefer not to have to rename the domain since that may create other issues.

Thanks in advance for your help.

you need to configure your internal URLs to be the .org domain and not .local; you won't be able to get .local certificates in a few months anymore anyway
also, setup split dns

You cannot get certificates with .local on them that expire after November 2015, so unless someone is selling certificates that have a six month life, then you cannot get one.

SSL isn't really optional for Exchange, you cannot turn it on or off within Exchange. Therefore a split DNS system and modify all of the internal URLs to the external host name is the best option.
