Need help configuring OWA

Hey Experts

I got a server that is a 2nd DC on a domain.  It is in a 2nd location and has exchange for its own domain (even though both servers are on the same domain, each site has a different email) and the other DC has exchange and its own email as well.

i got exchange installing and working today.  however, i am unable to access OWA.  When I try, it points to the other server for authentication, not the one i set up.

I didnt set up the 1st exchange and dont want to mess with it---but i have a problem.  the other guy has set ip restrictions and thus prevents OWA from working.  I have the record with our ISP for our webmail.DOMAIN.com pointing to our IP address, not his, but for some reason it is still going to him.  On the server if i go IPaddress/exchange, it resolves to his server, not mine.  i have verified in DNS that our server IP matches the name

i need to get this working ASAP as people are pretty mad.  i am not sure how to get the 2 exchange servers to operate seperatlely.  is there something i am doing wrong?  how do i get OWA working for our mail server?

thank you

i figured this out.  this was all my fault.  i created the mailboxes on his server, not mine.  a quick removal and recreation fixed this.
