Configure mac mail on snow leopard to SBS 2003 exchange

I have a user that just got a new macbook pro with 10.6.6osx and wants to connect to the corp email server that is sbs 2003 with exchange. I have another user that I just connected with their ipad successfully after getting an ssl for the server.

I can get to outlook web mail on the server from the mac just fine and sign in successfully.

I get an error from the mac mail that says... unable to connect... verify settings and try again...server mail.domainname.com cannot be contacted on port 80 or 443 depending on if i have ssl checked.
Should the settings on mac for exchange server be mail.domainname.com/exchange?
What should internal server be? Right now it says ews/exchange.asmx which i thought was for exchange 2007.

should username just be the windows logon or should it contain the domainname/username?
Should the server names under the accounts tab under account info and advanced for the mac mail settings be the same?

No can do. You need Server 2008 to use MacMail. Your alternative is Entourage, which is part of MS Office for Mac:

iPad, iPhone, Android uses ActiveSync to sync emails to mobile devices.......  you can also try using IMAP.
