[ExchangeList] OWA question...

Have a friend running Exchange 2003 for his organization.  He has only
one backend server that he is also using for OWA access.

My question, since he is not running a Front-End/Back-End configuration,
he is not going to be able to use 'Forms Based Authentication', correct?

Also, if he is unable to purchase another server to act as a Front-End
server, can he apply an SSL certificate to the OWA site on his single
Backend Server for security?
He is trying to deploy Mobile Devices with his current setup, and my
experience is that you can not support Windows Mobile Devices without an
SSL cert. on the server, but that is a side point.  

Sorry for such 'simple' questions as I have never worked in a Single
server exchange 2003 environment and I obviously need to brush up on the
limitations of that type of deployment.  I look forward to your
