Help understanding my PIX setup

So I have a PIX 506e.  Our local cisco people have lost their BRILLIANT tech, and I can no longer rely on them. I need some help understanding my PIX. I'm a true geek and have no problems with computers, but I have always left Cisco stuff, to cisco people. So at this point, I think I only need a little nudge in the right direction.

First, I was told by the 'new' guy that he setup (i should add that one project is syncing iPhones) port 993 for IMAP. I ran a 'show run' command and don't see anything about 993. Was the 'show run' command the right one? Am I missing something or is port 993 not setup?  Second, I see HTTP on port 80. Weird? or just me. Our OWA uses an address of server.ourdomain.com:8080/exchange.   I'm guessing it's because of that. (guess I should say, we are a smallish company, 50 users, and I'm the new tech guy here. I've found a bunch of wierd things from when we were setup. Like *1* outside IP on a T1 line.)

Anyway, if anyone can help with this I'd love it. Right now I'm just happy with knowing what we have in the way of port forwarding. If this list is correct and we do not have port 993 set, I'll work on that next. THanks

The fixup protocol is used to change the default port assignments or to enable or disable application inspection on the listed protocols.  So wrong area of the config to see what port forwarding is enabled.

"sh run" is the correct command to view the configuration.  You'll need to page through the config using "enter" key for a single line of "space" bar for page at a time.

Scroll through the config and look for lines starting with static (inside,outside) and static (outside,inside)

The following URL would be a good reference to work it out, or post back and should be able to advise.
