Can not access owa on SBS 2008 externally

Hello every, new to SBS 2008, as you can probably see cause this my 3rd question. I can not log into OWA externally. I get to the log in box and i am able to sign in, but once i do, i get and internet explorer can not display webpage. I can access it internally without a problem. I am not understanding what i have done wrong. all the pop, smtp, http and https ports are opened on the firewall. Also is there a way to acces OWA in SBS 2008 just by using http://mail.... rather than https://......?

Assuming that you have an correct A record in place if you are using a URL and that you have configured the web wizards to allow access for the outside world (remember that SBS 2008 has a firewall unlike SBS2003).  check to make sure you are using the "https" instead of "http".

You might be experiencing the same problem this guy had: http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/35064950/sbs-2008-owa-not-working.aspx

He found that the remote management for the Dreytek router was hijacking port 443.
