We have a WAN with all traffic from remote offices forced through a single gateway in the main office.

In the main office we have ports 443, 80, and 25 being forwarded to our main mail server

OWA works fine for mail boxes on this server

We also have 2 other mail servers running exchange 2003

We want to be able to access OWA for clients who have their mail on the 2nd office.

All email routes through the first office to the 2nd.

Whats the least painful way to get OWA working to the 2nd server

There is only two ways that you can allow OWA access to the other servers.

1. All the servers have to be exposed to the internet. That will mean their own IP address and a name that resolves.

2. Acquire another Exchange 2003 server and configure a frontend / backend scenario. A standard license will be fine for a frontend server.

The second option from simon is the recommended one , as in a front end / backend configuration will provide security as well solve ur problem . For how to configure the exchange in such a senario see the below article
