To keep a long story short, a couple entries were removed from our DNS forward lookup zone. Now after logging on to Remote Web Access we get an error "Cannot connect to Remote Web Access". I have tried re-running Anywhere Access setup, and ran a repair but they did not restore the DNS entries. Can anyone tell me what entries there should be or how to restore them?

You need to resolve your "mail.domainname.com" to the internal IP address of your server.

Ping your FQDN and if it resolves to your external IP, add an "A" record on your intrnal DNS server pointing your FQDN to the internal IP of your server.
