http to https (SSL) on Mobile phones

Good Morning Experts.

We have just introduced SSL certificates into our Domain for use will Outlook Anywhere encryption.

I am trying to redirect all our current devices to use this SSL option but I am not to sure how to do it. I have been able to get http://website.co.uk to forward to https://  and am able to access outlook web access but for some reason I cannot get the Iphone or blackberry's to sync even unless I allow them to use the http option again, though  they where working prior to the redirect and it should just be a case of them browsing to a diff website. Is this because they do not pull up the Error 403.4 when they are trying to access the owa which is where my redirect is. Is there a way to pull the error code that the phones receive and then redirect them? I know that I can manually put the ssl on all the iphones and manually change the setttings on the blackberry's. but I would like this to be automated

The Current Script I am using is:

  If Request.serverVariables("SERVER_PORT")=80 Then
     Dim stSecureURL
     strSecureURL = "https://"
     strSecureURL = strSecureURL & Request.ServerVariables ("SERVER_NAME")
     strSecureURL = strSecureURL & "/exchange"
     Response.Redirect strSecureURL
  End If

Just ask if you have any questions.

The web server access log will detail the servers response to the mobile requests.

The Logs enabled me to view the error codes that where being received but changing the error codes did not result in fixing the phone errors. We carried out a different method of deployment in the end where we manually added the SSL to the users rather then doing it centrally
