Hi Guys,
I am using SBS 2003 and the Exchange version that is incorporated.
Both the server and Exchange is at the latest SP level.

I have setup OWA - all good no issues

However followed the Microsoft advise of removing forms etc and copying Exchange file to local directory then reimporting it as Exchange-OMA
Then changing the registry value etc...

But I cannot connect to
or http:\\
local server name\oma

If I use https - it picks up my certificate
then it asks for user-name password etc

HTTP Error 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address of the client has been rejected.
