Can't access OWA or Remote from outside of the company.

I have inherited a new server. SBS2003. It’s configured and working fine, however, I can’t figure out how to get to the owa! I put in mail.domainname.com/exchange and nothing comes back. The owa is working because it can connect to it internally. The problem I have is I can’t confirm that mail.domainname.com is the correct address set in Exchange.
What am I missing? I have setup exchange server times with no issues so this is really stumping me. I am not sure what the prior tech did. How do I confirm that going to mail.domainname.com/exchange is the correct address?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

do you have mail record on the external DNS zone ? is it points to your exchange public ip address ?

do you have a port forwarding ( 80 or 443) in your external firewall, if any ?

the external dns says mail.domainname.com and I have ports 80 and 443 open and pointing to the server.

then please telnet on port 80/443 from external machine

telnet external_ip_address 80

also, can you access owa by ip address ? if not then it seems to be a firewall forwarding issue. do you use ISA to publish owa, or another firewall ?

I did a test and it says port 80 and 443 are closed. All the others are open and I configured it the same way! Okay..gotta call the firewall manufacturer.

Thanks.
