I am new to activating the use of outlook web access and using a domain address with it. i.e. https://www.mydomain.com/owa instead of https://22.214.171.124/owa
We are using Small Business Server 2008 and have Outlook Web Access currently working. Basically our external IP address is routing all port 25 and 443 traffic to the internal IP address of our Small Business Server and it is all working fine if we use https://126.96.36.199/owa. We haven't purchased a commercial SSL certificate from Thawte or anybody, we are just using SBS's built in features.
In out web domain control panel I have now setup a subdomain - mail.mydomain.com - and have pointed the A Record to out external IP address. Is this correct? I'd rather use https://mail.mydomain.com/owa than the IP address version.
Sorry if I haven't explained things properly, but I am new to all this as I said.
In addition to this, if anybody can clarify with me how exactly the iPhone is supposed to work with Microsoft Exchange I'd appreciate it. No tutorial online I have found has helped at all, and I have filled in all the fields correctly when trying to set this up on an iPhone 3GS. But it fails to connect and sync.
Many thanks in advance for any help.
