Problem linking exchange client to exchange server over the internet.

We have recently installed exchange server 2000 with outlook 2000 at the office with various mail boxes that work fine in the office using a broadband connection. Im trying to connect  from home using my Isp. I log on using the same profile as in the office - Outlook opens showing the mailboxes I can see but I cannot expand the other mailboxes. When I hit 'send and receive' i get a ME Remote connection box...dialing...waitng for connection - then it disappears.It seems as though its attempting a dial up connection when i want to connect over the intenet. What am I doing wrong?

I have heard that it is possible in 2003 exchange(rpc over http)
but i personally have not seen one work in 2000.U can find
tons of articals which will say technicaly is possible and u could trty.
The best u can do in 2000 exchange is OWA or pop3 connection to ur
office.

Thanks for the comment Vahik - the problem with OWA and pop3 is the lack of functionality. I need to be able to access all outlook folders in all mailboxes where I have permissions.

Whats about to simply connect to the server using the remote console? Logon with your UserID and you can see everything you can see, as you would logon locally (as the terminal server sessions runs locally).

I've found the answer myself (I have connected VPN client  software on the client machines) - it works fine. Please delete the question - thanks to all who contributed.
