Hi I have a customer running small business server 2003 on a network with about 10 workstations.
He has a exchange server for email, but does not know if his previous IT guy set up web access or not. I need to know if its running and if so how do I find the address in exchange manager. I need to set up his iphone for mobile mail access. I have done the iphone setup before with OWA and it works good, but I need the exact server address.  

Thanks

go into iis manager and view the properties for either default web stie or sbs web applications (look for the exchange vdir)
go to the directory security tab and view the certificate
the subject name of the certificate should have an external A record in DNS which is used for OWA and ActiveSync

get the ip of the exchange server

goto "https://<i.p address>/exchange" from an internal workstation

if this resolves to a OWA login page check in dns to see if there are any entries that point to this address maybe an alias like webmail point to that ip. This will give you the address to use internaly.

as iphone needs to connect externally you need to find out what the external address is. Maybe an mx record setup in dns with ISP providor pointing to your gateway or firewall

The OWA address is likely the same as the MX record. You can go to http://www.mxtoolbox.com  enter your domain name, and in the resulting window click on MX record to see the server's public fully qualified domain name.
