Outlook Web Access.

You're going to need to know how your firewall is setup though.  OWA has some wizards in SBS2003 that should make it work -- if you need more help, just let us know..

If you are on Windows XP SP2, Office 2003 (Outlook 2003 licenses are included with Exchange 2003/SBS licenses) then you could look at RPC/HTTPS. This of course presumes that you are using the same machine to connect remotely all the time.
If you are using a different machine each time, then OWA is your only option. However there is nothing to stop you using both OWA and RPC/HTTPS on the same server - offering clients both solutions.

If you are going down the OWA route then an SSL certificate is a must. Opening port 80 on an Exchange server to the internet is asking for trouble.
RPC/HTTPS also needs an SSL certificate and as such you can use the same certificate for both services.
