SBS 2003: cannot access companyweb after enabling ssl on default website in IIS

On an sbs 2003 server installed a self-signed certificate and everything was working fine.  I enabled ssl in IIS on the default website and now cannot access companyweb, get 401.1 error. Also one user who has an iphone can no longer recieve mail...gets cannot connect to server error. But RWW and OWA work fine.

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.

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??
