I can access the https://server/mobileadmin page just fine. Transaction log shows nothing, which is fine. I have two devices using direct push to receive email (they can also send). When I go to remote wipe and enter in a mailbox name that exists I get a 403: Forbidden with the following stack trace. This only happens when I actually enter a mailbox of someone who exists. If I enter nonsense in it just comes back to tell me it cannot find that mailbox (which is expected).

Stack Trace:


[WebException: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.]

Basically here is my question. I've found this following link: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/SBS_Small_Business_Server/Q_21970368.html?query=mobileadmin+403&clearTAFilter=true

I unchecked "require ssl" for the directory ExAdmin under my default web site and I can query devices just fine. However, is this a security risk? Should I only disable SSL required if I am going to access MobileAdmin?

Don't confuse REQUIRE SSL with your ability to use SSL. If you only have port 443 open to the intrnet then it is not a security risk. If you have port 80 open to the internet then you have bigger problems to worry about.
