I have an Exchange 2003 server I can access internally. I cannot access OWA externally. I do have ISA or a front end server. I'm not using a SSL certificate. I want to be able to access OWA externally with the least amount of hassle. Mail is flowing in and out normally to all of the clients. I did not build this server and usually have never experienced this problem before. Oh yeah, POP3 is working. HELP!

You indicate that you have ISA which is a firewall...you need to setup a rule to allow external users access to OWA

EndureKona, What would that rule for ISA with web listener to for OWA look like? Like I stated before I'm running ISA or did you mean IIS? Is there a link to setting that up?

Sorry you said "I do have ISA"

What type of firewall do you have?   You have to setup port 80 or 443 forward to your OWA server.
