Replacement Exchange 2007 server

Quick and dirty our e2007 box "VB-Xchange" went into an infinite reboot loop so a loaner box was brought in and raid set move into loaner machine and mail was back online. We purchase new box, built OS named server "MAIL" installed exchange and migrated mailboxes over a 2 week span.

Purchase and installed a verisign cert "" on new server and inhouse has no problems. ActiveSync devices have no problem. OWA access is no problem.

PROBLEM is Outlook Anywhere and 2 remote sites connected via cisco ASA site-to-site tunnels.

No one can connect to server from either remote site (site-to-site tunnels in place) or from road locations without connecting via Cisco VPN Client.

From remote sites I can ping all servers 12 total in main site but "MAIL". It resolves the name but no response.

Check your port forwarding to setting your firewall or router point which ip address if it point to then change it

Make sure in your firewall or router and network your exchange port is not blocking.

Add an any to any rule on the ASA5510 to see what happens. It totally took out all Internet traffic. So I removed the rule and holy crap that did something and all MAIL traffic up and running? Totally clueless about how adding a rule then removing it solved the problem?!?
