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

I can reference it directly by IP also from the outside and it doesn't work.

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

Also make sure your firewall rules are set correctly.

Already did all that. I got the issue fixed. It's was an IP Security issue with the server.
