How did you install the SSL cert? The proper way is to run the internet connection wizard and create the cert there. It will set everything up for you.

I did run it through the connection wizard. The certificate had been installed a while back and everything was working fine. Just yesterday I went into the IIS manager and enabled SSL on the Default Website, thought I had already done that but found out I had not. After I enabled the SSL I got the pop-up "Inheritence overrides" I cancelled out of those and since then, have not been able to access companyweb and have one iphone user who gets a cannot connect to server error now, whihc both the iphone and the companyweb were working fine before enabling ssl.

I'm not sure that I follow the KN871179 article correctly, sine this is an SBS 2003 server should I use the command prompt anf roce IIS to use NTLM...also if this is done what other things might be impacted??

There is a new developemtn, it seems that the workstations can now access the companyweb, but the server cannot.

That is normal behavior. I believe one of the IE updates caused this. There are several articles about it. I just use a workstation but it realy sucks if you rdp into the server and need to make a change.
