Setup OS X mail to access MS Exchage

Hello,

I've got a Mac Book Pro with OS X 10.8.2 on it and I need help to setup the mail client.
I'm very new to the Mac world, so many terms are just out of my understanding.
Our company has an MS Exchange 2003 server which is accessible via the web interface (not IMAP). My boss' iPhone can connect to the server without any problem, but my attempt to setup the OS X's mail client failed. The autodiscover fails, it tries to connect to the completely wrong server.
My questions are: how to understand the settings I see on the advanced tab. There are text fields with the values like "EWS/Exchange.asmx". What is the meaning of this string?
Where can I find the connection log? If I open the "Connection Doctor" it only shows the SMTP log (which works fine).

Nicolus,
Thank you for the links. I have feeling, my problem is because we have Exchange 2003, but that article applies to Exchange 2007 and up.
I've checked the IIS on the server, it does not have EWS/Exchange.asmx resource.
It does have the /Exchange and /Exchweb virtual directories, but my attempt to replace the EWS/Exchange.asmx with /Exchweb failed as well.

It seems, that just impossible, according to this article.
I will try to setup the IMAP access to the server.

The setup I was asking about is outdated and is not supported by neither Apple nor Microsoft software.
