I am trying to set up a VPN with OMA & OWA on a SBS 2003 SP1 server. The OMA is so that iTouch and iPhone 4 acess via wi-fi and 3G.  I do not know what to use as the sever name when configuring the mail account on the iPhone.

Two quick things to try from the command line might give the information you are seeking.  

netstat -a

-and-

nslookup
>ls -d yourdomain.com

For the record you don't need a VPN for OMA or OWW.

You can find the mail server address which is usualy the address you would use by going to www.mxtoolbox.com enter your domain name and then do an MX lookup.

Surely it's just the external ip address of the server, that's what I use, make sure you have the port open, 143 I think.

If not using a VPN you need to have a certificate, which is usually configured. In order to use the IP, which is not common, the certificate would have to be a self signed certificate for the IP rather than the domain name. This is not a common scenario. Thus using the domain name would be a more typical configuration.

Also port 143 is for IMAP accounts. In a default configuration IMAP is not enabled on SBS.
