uhh k..

not really a great analogy used there. hackers will probably scan addresses for openings in OWA through SSL or just port 80 because these are default and the easiest to access. Chances of them scanning a random port number for OWA access/loophole is quite a bit smaller. We don't have the infrastructure, money or time to create a bulletproof firewall so this is an easier fix.

Only thing is that it doesn't work for Active Sync, I'm just wondering if anybody knows how to get it to work. I kinda of doubt it can work but it doesn't hurt to ask.
