Has the port enabled correctly in IIS Manager? When you look at the configuration of the site it should have 443 in the SSL port. Try stopping and restarting the site within IIS Manager.

Did you assign a proper (read: fully qualified) domain name as your "common name"?  It needs to be something that is fully routable over the Internet.  For instance, http://mail isn't going to work, but http://webmail.ourcompany.com could.  Be sure that you've created a DNS record for the common name that you'd like to use.

Personally, I would *disable* SSL temporarily, make sure that you can access your webmail via the DNS name, then turn SSL back on and be sure that you're now typing in https://webmail.ourcompany.com (or whatever).  It sounds to me like the DNS name you gave doesn't actually exist.

Hmmm....

It ended up being a corrupt certificate I had to uninstall the certificate and generate a new one once I did that .. it all worked perfectly.  Thank you for your feedback
