Nokia Mail for Exchange (SBS) through a Watchguard Firebox X700

Hi All
Wonder if somebody could possibly assist please.
I've been handed a Nokia E71 which I need to setup to communicate with our Exchange server (built into SBS 2003).  Mail for Exchange has been downloaded to the 'phone, I've put in the information that I think is required on this.  Outlook Mobile Access is setup on the server itself.  The complication is that we've never remotely connected to the domain by Microsoft's Remote Access included within SBS 2003.  The way we have done it is by setting up authentication on the Watchguard, then Remote Desktopping into the network.
Can anyone give me some pointers to establish a connection between my Exchange Server and my E71, through the Firebox?
Many thanks
Alex

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Forget about the Nokia device for a moment.
You need to get the server configured correctly for remote access.
As this is SBS, the first thing to do is run the Configure Internet and Email wizard and ensure that the options are enabled.
The next thing to do is change the self generated certificate for a commercial certificate. Getting certificates on to the Nokia devices is a pain. The cheapest source is GoDaddy. http://CertificatesForExchange.com/ 

Finally, open port 443 on your firewall from the internet to the Exchange server.

Once you have those things done, test the configuration using the Microsoft test site: https://testexchangeconnectivity.com/

That will confirm if things work or not. Then you can look at configuring the Nokia device.
