We just installed snapT load balancer in our DMZ

The issue at this point is that we are using host name “mail.DOMAIN.com” to access OWA which is configured on separate squid proxy server we are trying to replace .  I have change my host file to point to Snapt.  It is hitting Snapt and being forwarded to Exchange but Snapt is stating that it is being redirected from Snapt to the Exchange server since the site name on the Exchange server does not match mail.domain.com.  we just have internal URL populated(2k7domain.mail.lan) on exchange CAS server(2007)

the mail.domain.com/owa login page opens up with internal URL(2k7domain.mail.lan) of our exchange CAS server and then when we put our username and password it says page cannot be displayed

comment from snapt expert:
So just to re-explain it, you are sending mail.domain.com to Snapt. Snapt is then forwarding that request to Exchange which is doing a redirect to 2k7xxxx.xxx/owa/ - that means you are going direct to it and not through Snapt.

so how should we solve it
