What is more secure SSL 128 bit or PPTP VPN

Hi all

I have a bunch of remote sales people that must VPN into the comapny network via PPTP inorder to get to email and our CRM application that is running on one of our 2003 boxes. The VPN server is an ISA server 2004, I have come to the cunclusion that supporting a VPN server and the remote clients connection is more of a headach than it is worth. Users are always complaining about speed issues. I try ands  tell them that this issue has many factors including the users ISP that they are on. This plus the headach of having to troubleshoot or setup a users VPN connection is time consuming. My question is this I know i can publish my CRM app through ISA and use SSL 128 bit, and i can do the same thing for email as i can use RPC over HTTPS. Doing this would by pass the VPN thing, and i think would speed things up for the end users and at the same time cut back on the amount of support calls to me. My concerns are security, is making a VPN connection to the corporate network and then accessing the resources more secure VS publshing exchagne via RPC over HTTPS and the CRM application with SSL?

Many thanks for any suggestions

My oppinion is that SSL is more secure from PPTP
PPTP is not very secure at all
