How do I get Outlook 2010 to use .com server instead of .local Exchange server?

Upon renewing our Exchange SSL Cert we did not use .local and when trying to change the Exchange server within Outlook 2010 to mail.company.com it reverts to mail.company.local when entering manually. We have split DNS for .com and .local but am not sure if we need to add an entry or if Exchange 2010 has a setting we can use to modify.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The server address you are seeing in Outlook is fine. That will always be the real server's name and Outlook makes no connection to it using SSL.

The connections using SSL/HTTPS are elsewhere within Outlook and can be changed to use your public name, you just need to adjust the URLs within Exchange.

@Deepin Patel - read the question. This is about the server name, not the host names.

I implemented the internal URLs but the server name still resolves to .local?

As I wrote in my first response, the server address that you are seeing will always be the server's real name. That behaviour does not need to be changed.
In fact it is required, because Outlook Anywhere works on the basis of being unable to connect to the server using its real name, then failing over to the Outlook Anywhere configuration.
