I need to set up web access to Outlook mail for my users.  I have already set up Exchange 2007, and it is working nicely.  I just need to get the web access back for my users (before I get hung).

You should get this done by running the CEIEW wizard, where during the configuration there is an option for you to enable OWA. Once that's selected the wizard will handle the rest. However I seen cases that the wizard failed to open firewall on the router, so that may be the only "extra" step for you to open port 443 and redirect it to your server.

If this is full product, then you simply need a commercial SSL certificate to ensure that they don't get SSL warnings and open port 443 on the firewall. Thats it.

If this is SBS, then everything should be done through the wizards, unless your firewall is not controlled by SBS then you will need to configure that manually.

You will need a host name (remote.example.com) pointing to your server on the Internet, and a static IP address or dynamic DNS solution.
