Hi,

I am trying to connect RPC via HTTP and was advised that in SBS2003 i can click "Configure Outlook via the Internet"

But I cannot see the option for "Configure Outlook via the Internet" when i log into RWW via http://ipaddress/remote

Is there a way to enable the option for "Configure Outlook via the Internet" on SBS2003 Exchange SP2?

These are the only links i have in RWW:-

On the left of the screen:-
Connect to server desktops
connect to client desktops

Under Additional links:-
Use outlook web access
Provide remote assistance
view client help

You won't get anything like that in RWW as RPC over HTTP is a way of connecting Outlook 2003 (the desktop application) to Exchange 2003.  Look in Outlook 2003.  Also, be warnned, this is only available on desktops running Windows XP SP1 or higher.

You will see this link only when you run the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW - linked as "connect to the Internet" in the Server Management Console > Internet and Email section), and select the option to make Outlook via the Internet available.

dons6718, FYI, the INSTRUCTIONS are in RWW once the option has been selected in the CEICW.

Yes, the instructions on how to do it are there (which are discussed many places) but not any actual checkbox or setting.  I took the question to be how to set it up, not where are the instructions.  

Misreunderstanding will be the death of us all some day.

They may be discussed in other places, but the ones on the RWW main menu are SPECIFIC to the installation, and will ONLY show up if RPC over HTTPS has been enabled through the CEICW.  It can't be configured in Outlook until it's enabled on the SBS.
