ISA 2004

Is there a "standard" set of policies that allows ISA 2004 to function in a basic edge firewall configuration?  I am new at this and I'm concerned that I am missing critical policies or perhaps opening ISA up to much.

No such thing really. By selecting the edge firewall template you can select whether you want to start with restricted or full access but the default policy allows all outgoing, blocks all incoming. The default policy does not, by default, allow outgoing traffic from the local host (ISA server itself).

If you can explain what you are looking to achive I can likely assist with the necessary policies.
For example,

Allow all web traffic (http & https) for all users except for web sites in the *.sex.com domain
Allow all outgoing DNS and SMTP traffic
Deny all traffic to ip address x.y.z.d

Allow incoming email to the exchange server
Allow Outlook web access etc etc

Yeah,  it was this same as the other  on my other segment.  Since I had  ISA on my domain box it messed everything up.  I seem to have it ok now but I'm sure I'll have some questions.
