Need to setup OUTLOOK 2003 to work the same at home (POP3) and office (Exchange 2000 Server)

I have a user with a tablet PC that wants to use Outlook 2003 seamlessly at home and office. He doesn't want to use OWA because he has other POP3 accounts setup in Outllook 2003 and wants to keep it all in one place.

In the office he accesses everything via Exchange Server. When he is home he cannot get Outlook 2003 to open because it cannot find the Exchange Server. If I set him up with POP3 he can use email either place but will not have a calendar on the server he can update and for other employees to access.

Is there anyway to get the best of both worlds here?

Can you set him up with remote access for logging into the Exchange Server, e.g. using a VPN client?

In Exchange 2003 you could use the RPC over HTTP wich allows for the end user to connect to the exchange server via the internet.  I believe this is one of the changes from exchange 2000 to 2003 for your very reason.

Thanks Frank. My best bet is to upgrade Exchange 2000 to 2003.
