Is it possible to connect remotely from outlook 2003 via RPC/HTTP to Exchange server 2003 without having both a front end server and back end server. Can I use just one server?  Thanks

    With my "expert" hat on.

    Perfectly possible to deploy RPC over HTTPS without ISA or a frontend. Microsoft just like you to jump through hoops.
    You have to make the registry changes yourself. The sites above list them, as does my own web site at

    Get it working inside first, before you step outside.
    You will also have a better success rate if you use a purchased SSL certificate rather than a home grown certificate. Use a trial certificate from RapidSSL to get yourself started.
