I setup OWA address to be mail.eldad.co.il both internal and external
I setup ActiveSync to use mail.eldad.co.il
I setup the web services to use mail.eldad.co.il and to use the default autodiscover URL
I didn’t choose IMAP or POP
I setup Unified messaging to use a public cert
I enabled TLS and opted for the default smtp.eldad.co.il for the connector FQDN
On the certificate organization and location info page fill in the organization details and click Next
