Domain Name Resolution

I have hit an odd issue. I've been a very happy pfsense user for about 2 years and things have run fantastic. Recently I decided to setup a mail server and that, too, is running wonderfully, except for one item. My domain name is not resolving correctly inside my network. When I point a browser to mydomain.net it resolves to https and brings me to the pfsense login page. I'm sure this is a simple setting (and typically my googlefu is strong) but I cannot find where I have it misconfigured. Any help would be fantastic.

You can fix this by either configuring NAT reflection, or by getting your internal DNS server to point your domain to your internal IP instead of the public IP address. I use the latter technique at work. My external DNS is handled by a pair of Linux boxes, and my internal DNS is handled by Windows AD controller. Even though my external Linux boxes handle our public IP, I added all my external FQDNs to my Windows AD controller DNS and pointed it towards the public server's (mail, web, ftp) internal IP addresses. Works like a charm. I found NAT reflection giving me pain when I was trying to connect to our FTP server by going out the firewall and then back in.
