Autodiscover SSL problems

I have the following problem:

Outlook clients receive an SSL error when they connect to the Exchange server. This is because I don't have a ssl certificate for the internal domainname.

I own a ssl certificate for mail.externaldomain.com, I tried to order a ssl certificate for mail.internaldomain.com but I am not allowed to purchase that because we don't own the *.internaldomain.com.
In order to workaround this problem I changed the autodiscover url to mail.externaldomain.com, and this way the ssl error disappeared, but the clients now have to login everytime they open the Outlook client....
How can I resolve this problem??

if you cannot purchse certificate, you can install microsoft CA internally and then issue a certificate to the Exchange server that has the name mail.internaldomain.com and assign it to the Exchange serverRegards, Mahmoud Magdy Watch Arabic Level 300 Videos about Exchange 2010 here: http://vimeo.com/user3271816 Read pretty advanced Exchange stuff I post here: http://www.enowconsulting.com/ese/blog.asp, follow my blog: http://autodiscover.wordpress.com , corp blog: http://ingazat.wordpress.com and if you Liked my post please mark it as helpful and accept it as an answer

I've installed CA and I've tried to issue a certificate, but I've got no idea how to do this.

I can only seem to issue myself an user-certificate, but that's not helpful.
Also when I create a selfsigned certificate using Exchange Management Console, I have no idea how to install it in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store in order to get it trusted.

keep in mind that you have to use web server template
