    Anyone know why I can't access
    microsoft outlook web access via bt broadband ?
    It won't work on any of the 3 pc's on my network.

    Router seems correctly configured as all pc's can access other https sites

    https://emea.mail.microsoft.com/exchange

    This is the link, I just get page cannot be displayed.

    Any ideas gratefully received

    Are you sure you are not trying to do this in the was that requires
    exposure of the MS networking RPC ports? If so (other than this being a
    very dodgy way of accessing remote mail) many ISPs now block these ports
    to curtail spread of things like the Blaster worm.

    Strangely, my work has just changed its MS exchange web access from http
    to https because apparently people using NTL couldn't get it to work !?!

    I was going to suggest checking with your ISP ..... but you're with BT,
    so maybe you could save some time and just turn around and ask the wall
    behind you......
    ;-)
