Run the Internet Address Wizard from the Getting Started Tasks.

If you have a third party trusted certificate then run that wizard using the Certificate Already Installed option.

Hi ComputerConcepts,

First starters, review this link and apply the fixes tried here.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956196

On the off chance that something may be a miss (and basically to eliminate) try the following from your exchange server:

1. Browse to ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS
2. Click on Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
3. Right Click on the Mail Server, then select NEW TASKS, then RESTART IIS.

Report back with what you've found after.

Regards,
Nick

Philip I will give that a try tonight when I wont distrupt bsuiness.  Nick, The link did not help and restartimg IIS did not help ether.  I have tried it a few times.  I have gone into iis manager and looked over things and don't see any issues although this is kind of new to me.  companyweb does work fine.


Thanks,

Aaron

When trying to access sites on the server it seems to be the secure sites that are not working.

Thanks

Whose SSL certificate are you using? The self-issued SBS one or a third party?

If you browse to http://serverip/owa or https what happens?

I usually have more issues with companyweb that the other two.

Make sure these sites are up and running in the sbs console.

A GoDaddy cert can be found for less than $14 per year.

To eliminate much of the hassle of working with a self-issued certificate it is a good idea to use a third party trusted certificate.
