Email issue on SBS 2003 !!!!

Hi Experts,

I have installed SBS 2003. AD and Exchange is working fine.

But we have some users who are going out side form the network (mobile users), I have set up a VPN to connect them to the network but it’s not very reliable since our internet connection is not fast enough. My main requirement is to establish email connectivity between inside and out side users.

We have out side hosted email server, exchange is used to download the mail using POP connector. But for this mobile user issue, can I change mobile user to pass internal email to directly to the out side. (to the external hosted email server, if not it’s delivering to the internal mail box so out side user can’t retrieve internal emails) Stopping POP connector is for the particular user is a small thing.

Please advice.

Thanks !

    If your running exchange, you can access outlook for the outside world using the internet explorer. if you type into your internet explorer youe external ip and then /exchange. your get page up with outlook asking them to log in. Also for a faster conntect i recommend, Remote Desktop. This is the best way. do you know how to set this up?

    You can also enable RPC over HTTP on the Exchange server, so clients can use Outlook 2003 to connect to their mailbox over the Internet without having to VPN.
