    But IIS is installed and running, http://localhost shows the IIS default page..

    Is there any other role / service that Ive not enabled? Do I need the metbabase for IIS6 option installed?

    Make sure you have the features installed for IIS, just cause you tick\check IIS it doesnt INSTALL all the features.

    Yes, you need the IIS6 compatibility stuff installed. Took me a while to work this out, as the help files don't seem to refer to server 2008 at all!

    Ah right, cool cheers. I guess I should have just tried that before I started completely removing and reinstalling the IIS Role

    I think the issue is to do with me changing the defualt IIS website port from 80 to 1010. I cant even open OWA on the localhost now

    Anyone know what I need to change to get it back running again?

    no idea on the exchange side but if you are trying to use https and you changed the port to use 443 would that conflict or what ?

    Also would be good to keep a track of - also the error you are getting regarding the authenticity - I take it you don't have to use certificates or anything like that ?

    You need to go to https://MAILSERVER/OWA - You'll have to put a redirection on if you want users to just go to https://MAILSERVER/

    I managed to resolve my issue.. I only have one static IP, and run apache on a linux box for port 80 which NAT points to. So I was trying to change the IIS default port from 80 to something else. Exchange didnt like that at all. However, I realised that as Exchange is on https, which is port 443, and Im not using that elsewhere, I could forward 443 to the exchange box. And leave IIS on the exchange box running on 80.

    So now http://mydomain.com goes to port 80 on the linux box, and https://mydomain.com goes to the exchange. And now OWA works.

    So to summarize, It seems Exchange NEEDS IIS to be on port 80 for it to work.

    Anyway, got a new problem now :P

    #550 4.4.7 QUEUE.Expired; message expired in unreachable destination queue. Reason: A matching connector cannot be found to route the external recipient ##
    Doesnt seem to be sending mails.

    Also, is there a way to login to OWA without having to specify Domain\Username and just login with Username ?
