We have a SBS 2011. Our system has been configured so that iPhones can collect E-Mails from outside of the network - basically, they connect to the mx (mail01.domain.com) which resolves to the WAN interface of our firewall, which is then forwarded to the exchange. So far so good.
The iPhone users now wish to collect emails from within the network via WiFi. At the moment, they need to use UMTS in order to collect emails and when they are in the office, they would prefer to use the wireless LAN. I assume we need to setup the DNS - but not quite sure what to do.
Many thanks for your help & suggestions.

I assume your wifi uses the DNS server on the SBS server? If this is the case, you should create a new primary zone on the DNS server with domain name mail01.domain.com.
And after that create an A record in this new zone with no name and enter the internet ip address of your SBS server (like 192.168.x.x) that should do the trick

Will try this out. When going to create a new Primary Zone, the wizard asks the following questions:
- Save zone in AD?
- Active Directory Zone Replication: On all DNS-Servers within the domain?
- Forward or Reverse Lookupzone?
- Allow secure or insecure dynamic updates - or non at all?
Finally, what do you mean by the "internet" IP address of my server. The "internal" ip address of the server or the WAN IP address of our firewall?
Thanks for your help.
