OWA 440 Login Timeout problem

I am setting up Outlook Web Access on our SBS 2003 network. I can get remote clients to connect to the "Remote Web Workplace" but when they click on the "Read my company e-mail with OWA" option it instantly comes back with '440 Login Timeout'.

The machine has RRAS running, but I have tried access both from the Internet interface side, and from the local LAN side with the same result.

I take it you have sharepoint up and running on this box? HAve you published your Exchange to the ISA server?

This is SBS 2003 Standard - it does not come with ISA.

I have checked the security certificate and that is ok, but I am not sure if the secure login part of the "Remote Web Workplace" uses the same certifcate as OWA. The remote workplace login is https://servername/remote and that works, when you click for OWA it goes to an asp page hanging off the same web, but I have a suspicion that OWA itself is in a different web address on the server, but I don't know how to check, or how to check its security certificate. The server is using self-certification - but I have to admit that getting certifcates to work has always been a mystery to me.
David WilhoitCommented:
if you added the cert to the default website, and required SSL, then the /exchange directory wants SSL, and you need to configure the Exchange portion for it. If I remember correctly, I had to use port 80, not SSL when using the RWW to get to my mail on the OWA page.
