Exchange Webmail Not Working

Posted on 2004-10-29

Hello all,

We are running the Exchange built-in webmail on Exchange 2000, on a Win 2000 server.

We had to reboot this server yesterday, and since then the webmail has not been accessible.

The address of it is:

We get a "The page cannot be displayed" error.

We had rebooted the server because we just installed a new router and fibrebox on our system, which has meant that our default gateway IP address has changed. Will this has screwed things up?

Can anyone please help?!

Is your iis server set to only expect connections on a specific IP Address?

If it worked that way before then it should be fine. Is the exchange server able to browse the web?

In fact, I can now ping the server, so I would say that the firewall is blocking port 80.

Can the web server itself get to or http://localhost/exchange?

Thanks Andrew - we have found that since the changes we made, we need to open up port 80 to forward to the IP of our mail server. Once that's done I think we'll be back up and running.
