WebDAV Web Folders won't work outside of our own domain

I'm trying to setup a WebDAV folder on my SBS 2003 server. It is working internally, but I can't seem to get the site to open as "Web folder" in Internet Explorer from outside of the domain.

I have followed the instructions I found on this site ...with no luck externally.

I have created a virtual directory under "Default Web Site" with an alias and basically tried every security configuration imaginable... with no luck. I can open the Web page externally, but I can't get Web Folders to work externally. Inbound Port 443 is open on my firewall, as is port 80 (both were already opened for OWA)... and since this is a virtual directory under my Default Web Site... I see that it is using the correct SSL cert (same one I use for OWA).

I have the Web Client service enabled and running remotely and locally. I've tried it with anonymous access enabled or disabled... I have the IUSR Guest Account enabled with full control under the share associated with the virtual directory (just as a test... not for keeps). No matter what I do, I can't get the site to open as a Web Folder outside of my own network.

What am I missing?
