Exchange Autodiscover

Is there any special configuration on Exchange 2010 if I want to use the name mail.mydomain.com rather than for autodiscover. I want to save the certificate cost with applying a single name only.

It is your choice but problem is when you connect your clients with autodiscover it always find autodiscover record which should be in certificate. if you are ok with manual configuration then don't publish your autodiscover record. else there is no option.

To clarify my understanding, I can't use use a single public mail server name as my autodiscover record. I need to setup two record, mail.mydomain.com and autodiscover.mydomain.com.

Yes you will have to setup two DNS. as autodiscover record get recognized while auto discovery by outlook from external network.

Like when you configure outlook with auto discovery from internet it will try a standard URL which autodiscover.mydomain.com

but without publishing autodiscover DNS name in certificate there is no point to publish DNS record for autodiscover. You will have to configure outlook manually.
