Exchange 2013 uses the same name for external and internal.
You will have to configure split dns  to resolve name to internal IP from internal network

I searched google before I posted the question.
It would be nice to post a screenshot of DNS console showing the A, MX, CNAME records on the public DNS , how they are laid out.  The same thing for DNS records on the internal DNS.

you can use windows DNS and mimic one console for Public DNS and on console for Internal DNS.

Thank you
