We are running Exchange Server 2003 SP2 on Server 2003. Webmail (http://yourdomain.com/exchange) is working from the internal network but not from outside the network. When trying to access it from outside it returns a Timed Out error.

You have to make sure your DNS is setup to go to your external ip of the website.

Like mine is:

mail.mycompanyname.com

mail - external ip address

Did you check IIS to make sure the pages are started and running?

Also make sure your firewall rules are set correctly.
