Remote Web & OWA has been working fine for over 3 months.

Suddenly today when I try to acess https://mail.dentalserve.net/owa or https://mail.dentalserve.net/owa. ExternallyI receive a message "Internet Explorer Cannot display the webpage"

However internally on the network I am able to successfully access https://mail.dentalserve.net/owa or https://mail.dentalserve.net/owa.

How has this problem occured out of the blue ? How can it be fixed ?

Thanks

Dall

What have you got between internal and external?  Router with port forwards?  Direct access ?  firewall ? etc.

Sounds like your pointer to the exchange server may be broken.  If you have a port re-direct then verify it is still in place.  Check firewalls etc.

Has any equipment/settings/software changed recently?  Specifically WAN/LAN equipment or security software on the exchange server?

I have a netgear Prosafe DGFV338 VPN ADSL Router. Firewalled

Inbound Ports 443, 80 and 987 are already opned and directed to the server IP.
No equipment has been changed

I have just tested and clicking on your https://mail.dentalserve.net/owa link I get presented with an OWA login page.  Whatever teh problem was seems to have resolved, has your router been restarted since the problem?  It may just have been a router issue.  If it was working internally but not externally the problem is normally DNS, port redirection or internet access.

Problem was resolved the domain provider added an additional MX record fro some reason.
I asked the provider to remove the additional MX record, this resolved the problem.
