I am not sure if i am following you question but if you are looking for your internal IP just ping the server that is hosting your exchange.

If you are looking for your external IP then you can go to this site http://www.whatismyip.com/ to check the IP. Normally you would have and external company that would have DNS entry for your external IP that is forwarding requests to your exchange server so that OWA is working.

if this isn't what you are looking for then please let me know

If you wanted to access webmail internally for what ever reason you would go to IE

if you have ssl onit would be

From outside you can test connectivity as mentioned above by using the EXTERNAL ip address
This should be

Both the above should actually be changed to a dns name along the lines of:


With the external you should IDEALLY use a trusted SSL certificate so you can access your email on your mobile phones etc. You can purchase these cheap enough from godaddy.com otherwise you will get an error using webmail externally saying this site is not trusted and you WILL NOT be able to collect your emails via your mobile phones or on external PCs not on the network trying to connect via RPC over https if you wanted to go down this route of course
