can you give some more details as far as the firewall rules? Is a connection even established (i.e. when you telnet to port 443, are you getting a response or is it failing?)

is the edge server configured as a front-end server? if not, the default behavior is to redirect to the internal servers, which obviously won't work. for example, you have two servers: exchange1.corp and exchange2.corp; you also have firewall1.corp and dmz1.corp.

When someone connects to the firewall, he goes to dmz1.corp, and authenticates; then, dmz1 says, ok, the mailbox is on exchange1.corp, i'll redirect to there, and the user is redirected to exchange1.corp, which is obviously not reachable from the outside.
