T, 

Port 80 has nothing to do with sending and receiving mail on Exchange.
Exchange uses SMTP which uses port 25. Port 80 is strickly web access,
unless you are trying to do RPC over HTTPS for your outside clients
which requires 445, 80, and 443. :)

http://www.MSExchange.org/

My firewall has been configured to allow access to port 80 on the
Exchange server and that's how I am able to receive emails and send
emails out. But when I try to connect from the outside my network to
my server through http://email.mycompany.net/exchange, that's when I
receive the message I talked about. I haven't configured SSL yet on my
Exchange server yet.

Is there any step by step instructions to configure IIS for OWA to
work? If anyone knows about any link for this information, please help
out. Thanks.
