Please post in plain-text, I can't quote your message...

This is really a domain name resolution problem. You want to leave pointing to your external IP address on the external DNS
but you want to configure your internal nameservice to point to your internal IP address. 

This is not so easy to do - if you take over .com addresses internally,
you risk that clients will lose access to real external .com addresses
(you DNS will point them to the internal server which won't find them).

Going out and in again is not so daft - it allows you to verify the
entire set-up when you are testing the web-site (ISP link, FW, routers
etc.). Alternatively, if you must have internal access, consider an
alias for the site on the internal network.
