Setting up Outlook Web Access on Exchange 5.5

Hi,

 

We have MS Exchange 5.5 SP4 installed.  I need to setup Outlook Web browser.  Now I can install the application on either the Server itself or on a separate machine on the same network/domain.  To enable users from the outside world to enable outlook web client do the machines where Outlook Web Access is installed need another network card with an external IP address?  As if I was setting up a web server?  Because I can not see any other way how people would be able to access their emails from outside the network.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello chalotte1

As far as I know (from doing my own Exchange 2000) OWA is automatically installed and running, you need to create a static entry on you firewall to allow users port:80 access to the mail server! Once this has been achieved you just simply type the following in your address bar in any browser.

http://SERVER_NAME/exchange/MAILBOX_NAME/inbox

and you will be greeted with an OWA login box, just provide the logon credentails and wolah you have Outlook Web Access!
