I have Updated the SSL Certificate on My Exchange 2003 Server. At first the default website could not be started with error that another prosses was using it. I ran Netstat -ano and the only thing listening to port 995 on 0.0.0.0 is POP3 which it should. I disabled POP3 in services and was able to start the default website. I restarted POP3 but I am unable to connect to OWA from the local server or from the internet. I have gooled this for 2 days and I can not find a resoultion. Please Help Me

Have you removed the SSL certificate? It could be a corrupt SSL certificate.
What else is on the system? It could be that something else has taken over the port - I have seen management apps do that in the past.

Yes. I have removed and then Recreated a new certificate. The only thing on the server is exchange.

Check certmgr.msc (Certificates MMC) - view computer store - select Personal.  Is the cert showing here?  In IIS, open site properties - directory security - view certificate.

When you look at the general tab of the cert, it shows the little grey key and message saying you ahve the private key?

The Cert is showing correctly in certmgr.msc. Everything on the cert looks fine. Sunday I uninstalled both IIS and Exchange and reinstalled them. The website for OWA came back up and I restored mailboxes from backups. What a PIMA. But, Everything is working now. I would hope that there is an easier solution out there but I was running out of time.

Thank you all
