I'm trying to find how to connect external to my SBS user email using OWA.

Usually this would be mail.domain.com/owa or ip.ip.ip.ip/owa and then login to OWA - I can connect via browser to https://mail.domain.com but I just get a message 'forbidden, access is denied'

I'm not even sure if OWA is enabled, but right now I can't get any DNS zones from the web host so not really sure what do try next.

When you ran the configure my Internet address wizard it automatically sets the url to https://remote.domain.com  or directly to OWA with https://remote.domain.com/OWA

There is an option to change that to whatever you like such as mail.domain.com when running the wizard.  See step #7, advanced settings:

With SBS 2008/2011 you cannot use the IP and you must purchase and install a 3rd party certificate.  The name used such as remote.daomin.com must be exactly the same in the wizard, public DNS and the certificate.

Having said that I believe https://remote.domain.com/OWA will work without the certificate, but the primary page, Remote Web Access will not.  If public DNS is not configured nothing will work, though you could test from the LAN side.  The wizard creates a matching internal zone for the public domain for LAN use.
