Changing MS Exchange 2013 server name in client outlook Server settings

Microsoft Outlook clients no longer connect to your servers fully qualified domain name like they used to, instead it's using a GUID mailbox number. For an example: "357e7493-ef1f-4282-b34d-94cfc16ebdda@companydomain.org".

We just upgraded our Exchange 2010 server to Exchange 2013 now, when we do a manually settings or a configuration on the client outlook we can't use the fully qualified domain name like, "Webdomain.org" then we do a "Check Name". Which we use to do on Exchange 2010 server.

Is there a way of changing the Server name back to the fully qualified domain name? If so, how do you do it?

Here's a write up on how to construct the "server name" for Exchange 2013:

But why not just use autodiscover? That is the best and easiest way.

Thanks Jeremy for your answer...
What I was looking or hoping that, if there's a script that I can run on the Exchange Management  Shell to convert or  tranlate the GUID mailbox numbers to the FQDN. that would be ideal. Just like exchange 2010 server. Is there a reason why Exchange 2013 is using the GUID mailbox numbers?

You can get the FQDN but to what end? Are you hoping to put that in the "server" field when configuring Outlook? If so, you can't. You need to use the GUID. All connections are proxied through the front end. You no longer connect directly to the mailbox database. That's why you now use a GUID.
