Reinstalled IIS and Exchange -- OWA Still doesn't work

Ok,

  I couldn't get OWA to work from behind our firewall so I made a lot of config changes to the IIS OWA sites. Finally figured out the problem, but the security was so messed up that it wouldn't let me login. Followed the MS directions on unmounting the information store, removing IIS, reinstalling IIS, reinstalling Exchnage, remounting the stores. Did all that. Getting a 500 error when I try to launch OWA. When I go to the properties of the ExchWeb or Exchange in IIS, they all say "You must select a valid application pool". Not sure where the install went wrong....

Running SBS2003/Exchange2003

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Jason

THANKS!

  I tell ya, I looked everywhere. All over the MS site, never came across that article.

Would that have worked the first time? Instead of reinstalling everything that is.

Thanks again! Life saver. My deadline for completing this or rolling back was 1:30pm Eastern. You saved me.

Its a fairly new article. Not sure how I would search for it if I didn't know it was there...

Thanks for the points.
