SSL Question

Our firm currently has a web server sitting in a DMZ off of our firewall.  The webserver will eventually host a SSL secure website for clients to access.  So on the firewall we have port 443 open and pointing to the web server.  We are also currently testing Exchange and looking at migrating from Lotus Notes to Exchange.  We would like to put the Exchange server in our main office and would also like to use OWA so that users could access their e-mail from anywhere.  We most definitely want to use SSL secure connection for this as well.  I am confused on how I would do this though with 443 traffic already pointing to the web server.  Can this be done, and if so what's the best way to go about it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

well it can be done one of 3 ways basically.

you can host OWA on your web server (just the OWA, not the whole exchange)
or you can put your exchange server in your DMZ and map 443 traffic destin for mail.domain.com to your exchange server
or you can put an OWA server on your DMZ and map 443 traffic destin for owa.domain.com to your OWA server.

i think the part you are missing is that if you are using any decent router/firewall you statically map ports AND external IPs to an internal IP.
that way you will be able to port https://mail.domain.com to your owa server's IP AND also map https://www.domain.com to your www server's IP.
