Following three steps usually resolve the issue:

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -identity “SERVERNAME\EWS (Default Web Site)” -externalurl “https://mail.domain.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx” -BasicAuthentication:$True¬†

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity * -InternalURL https://mail.domain.com/ews/Exchange.asmx -ExternalURL https://mail.domain.com/ews/exchange.asmx -BasicAuthentication:$true

Create an A record pointing to an external address of the OWA or remote site
Create a CNAME record pointing autodiscover.domain.com to owa/remote.domain.com
