yeah petelong is right. OWA is installed by default and you can access is directly within the LAN by http://servername/exchange

For using OWA from internet the links below will help you

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

yes there is, but I'm still getting the pop-up asking me for the username and password.  I figure I would have at least gotten to the gold OWA page?

no more gold page :)

"This issue occurs if the user account that you used to log on to OWA does not have an appropriate Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) address"

Follow this article and make sure you have a recipient policy configured. You only get a login page with forms based authentication, which requires a cert and port 443, which you probably don't have right now.

it's a fantastic thing, but then I've had nothing but good luck with it. Fact is, setting it up the right way isn't too difficult, but if it gets screwed up with perms or authentication issues before you've had a chance to use it, it can be very tough to track down, unless you know where to look. Once it's set up though, it's a great substitute for Outlook IMO, I use it every day, been using it since it was in Beta 2.
