I need this info quickly so I'm going to offer MAX points to whoever can satisfy this request:

I need step by step instructions for our particular configuration for setting up RPC over HTTP so that Outlook 2003 clients can access the Exchange 2003 server. I need these instructions  for both the Exchange server and the client. Also need to know exactly what ports need opening on the firewall (I believe they are 443, 6001, 6002, and 6004) and what registry mods are needed on the server and the client. Also what do I need to modify in IIS?

My network is like this:

Exchange server runs on Windows 2003 Server Standard behind firewall at offsite hosted facility. It is the DC for the domain. There are no other servers.
Clients connect with Outlook 2003 over the internet with a variety of connection types, i.e. T1, DSL, Cable....

POP, IMAP, and OWA do not work for us for these reasons:
1. Must have GAL access without query
2. Must have the ability to use HTML stationery

Again, please respond with STEP by STEP instructions...
Thank you,
