My setup.

SBS 2003 Exchange Server - IP 10.0.0.3

Windows 2003 Files/Web Server - IP: 10.0.0.27

SonicWall Firewall : IP 10.0.0.1

I have my DNS records for mail(A,MX,PTR) pointing to my static IP address which hit's my firewall and routes traffic (port) to my Exchange Server. This works. mail.XXXXXXXXX.com

I have my DNS records for Web (Http/Https) pointing to my Exchange Server and File/Web Server.

Https - Points to my Exchange Server for accessing webmail. https://webmail.XXXXXXX.com/exchange

Http - Points to my File/Web Server for accessing my Intranet. http://webdesk.XXXXXXX.com

My problems.

I'm able to connect outlook to the exchange server while inside the network but, outside POP doesn't work.

I'm able to connect to https://webmail.XXXXXXXX.com/exchange from outside the network but, have to enter the IP of the server to enable webmail to work when I'm inside the network. https://10.0.0.3/exchange

I'm unable to connect to my webmail unless I put the "/exchange" at the end of the URL.

What I want to be able to do inside or/outside the network.

1) Connect to Webmail (my exchange server) using this address http://webmail.xxxxxxxxx.com

2) Connect to my Intranet (File/Web server) using this address http://webdesk.xxxxxxxxx.com

3) Have POP email work.

4) Have Https reserver for managing my firewall. (this was working until I had to use https for accessing webmail).

Hope someone can help. I think this is some pretty minor configuration that I've over looked but, would like some advice either way.

I'm sure I can figure this out myself but, thought I would see if someone can help shorten my trial and error time.

Thx
