Exchange 2007 and port 80

I am guessing I am behind the times a bit. In E2003 we needed to have port 80 open on the mail server for OWA.

With the E2007 I setup all the Exchange roles are housed on one physical server. That said, do we need port 80 open anymore for the E2007 server to work?

On this E2007 box We do not use Outlook Anywhere. External access is only via OWA and ActiveSync. Internal access is via MS Outlook

Your Outlook clients will be using MAPI to connect to the sessions which uses a mapper port of 135 and then dynamic RPC ports are assigned for client connections between 6005-65000.

So that being said in the version of Exchange you are running does not require 80 or 443 to be open. You can also verify this in more detail at the link below...

Depends on how you want to configure your OWA. OWA can be accessed using 80 but you can configure 443 for secured access.

Hope this helps.
