pretty much the bandwidth requirements depend on what kind of wan links you want to implement.  what are you going to be ruuning dsl, T1, DS3, etc?  After you decide on the link, the amount of users in that office that are going to be using this product, you can then tell if and what is going to be a viable solution for u.

I would strongly suggest placing a local Exchange server in your remote office for that large of a user population.  Outlook 2000 uses RPC to talk to the Exchange server, and you will utilized a lot of pipe and it will still be too slow for your end users.

I do not know of any official documents pertaining to your request, but I know from personal experience that your request is not suitible for a that large of a user group.

ktuffner:  currently i am planning a deployment and need to see what the minimun bandwith I will need for each satallite office.  there will be 15 offices around the Caribbian, Europe and Africa.  since bandwith in some parts is expensivce we need to see what the minimun is we can get away with.

dstoker: sorry about the misinfo.  we have currently 855 users local.  there will be around 20 people average per office.

i was thinking the minimum i could get away with in a busy office with 50 users would be 128k.  this is for email, logons, access to file server, etc.

thanks all, but i found the solution myself.  

here is a link to an MS whitepaper for Client Network Traffic for Exchange 2000:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;326141&Product=exch2k

i also used this webpage to see the difference in line speeds for different traffic counts:
