I need some assistance on setting up WebMail on my SBS 2003 SP2 Server. This server has been in production about a year now and everything is working fine. My users are now traveling and they want to access webmail through a browser other than vpn connection, browser with local IP address.

on the sbs server run the connect to internet wizard again. and check the options for owa. you will also need to port forward port 443 (SSL) to your SBS machine.

Yes thats the way it should be. What you are wanting to do is follow the instructions above. it sets up the server for the internet and configures the exchange to allow "Outlook Web Access"
See picture 14 "Web services configuration" in the guide referenced above.

I have went through those steps. When it gets to the POP3 information, what should I be using because I don't have any POP3 information to input.

i am assuming that you have a currently good working system, except without OWA.
That being the case you should be ablet to just next through all the screens ans they will already be populated with the current settings.
with the exception of the screen you will see in image 14 which you will need to tick the box and then "next" your way to the end. Do not change any other settings.
