Outlook Access when not on Network

Good Afternoon.

I am currently using my Laptop at home, and I have my user credentials cached so that I can log in as myself, even though I am not connected to my network.

I want to access my MS Outlook on my machine as if I was in the office. When I am in the office, our mail is sent/received and stored by an Exchange Server.

How can I access my MS Outlook from my local machine even though I am notin the office?

Are you talking of offline store?
Accessing your mailbox in the state it was before office network disconnection?
You have to setup offline access in your outlook profile
OL 2000: Tools/Services/MS Exchange/Advanced Tab: enable offline store
Must be the same in OL2002 in Tools/Email Accounts
With OL2003, i cant say as I never used it but there is a Cached Mode: see http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/2003/three/ch7/outb04.htm

Hi Barnardos,
You could go to tools, options, services, Exchange Serevr, 2nd tab, and create an OST file (Offline PST file) that will syncronise when you are back in the office.   This will not work if you are already using the following soltuion:
Create Personal Folders - A PST file, set your mail delivery preferences to store mails in this PST file instead of in the mailbox on the Exchange server.
