I have finally built a front-end server for exchange, suing Exchange
2003 Standard, SP1.
We have:
1 x exchange Standard SP1 (front-end)
1 x Exchange Enterprise, SP1 (back-end)
We do not use ISA server, and the FE server is in the perimeter network.

I followed the instructions in the technet site:
Chapter 4: Configuring a Front-End Server

- I did not create any extra virtual servers on the FE server, nor on
the BE server.
- I configured Basic authentication.
- My firewall is allowing all ports through from the FE server to the BE
- I have not disabled the DirectoryAccess Pinf, not the netlogon check.
- I am not hosting multiple domain

- I have enabled SSL and forms-based authentication.  When I access the
From inside our network I receive the authentication form, without any
server certificate errors sugggesting the installation of my certificate

However, when I enter my "domain\username" and password, I receive an
error stating that:

The page must be viewed over a secure channel
The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets Layer

Please try the following:

Type https:// at the beginning of the address you are attempting to
reach and press ENTER.

HTTP Error 403.4 - Forbidden: SSL is required to view this resource.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

Which seems odd as I am accessing it using HTTPS.

Any advice or pointers would be appreciated.
