    We have SBS 2003 and the companies internal website enables to allow
    employees remote access. I had a customer tell me that when they go to our
    public website, they get a message from IE saying something about a security
    certificate and advising not to go to site. This is the same message I get
    when logging onto the remote site from outside the office. I had set up the
    remote site for mail.website.com - but my customers are getting to the remote
    site by going to website.com. They go to the public website if thy use
    www.website.com. We do not host our public site on the server, just our mail
    through Exchange server. Why are people getting the redirect?

    Thanks

    I would check the public DNS records and see what IP address the
    www.website.com points to and which address the mail.website.com points to

    I am definately not totally sure I am reading this right. It looks like the
    www.website.com points to our old webhost. The website.com and
    mail.website.com appear to point back to our server??? How can I change this
    back? How could it have changed?

    THANKS

    Brandon,

    It's should be a DNS problem. Go to your ISP and make sure that the DNS
    entries are correct and they point to the correct hosts. In your last post
    you mention about "old webhost" which validates my assumption that DNS is
    the problem. Who edited the records when you moved to the "new host"? If
    it's the ISP talk to them.

    We had an IT company come in to install a new server and in the process they
    changed DNS, I thought they did this to route mail through a spam filter they
    had.

    Thanks!

    You will have to come in contact with the ISP that hosts your public web
    site (the www.website.com). Talk to them and tell them your issue (that it
    is redirecting to the mail.server.com site). Tell them you want to straight
    this thing up. If you are still in contact with the IT firm, contact them
    and explain the problem to them. Either them or the ISP will be able to
    help you
