I have it setup so that I can sync when I am inside our wireless network.  Is there away to do it when I am outside of the office?

That depends on what version and service pack your Exchange server is on.

Have you tried to use it from outside?
If the options are enabled in ESM and you can use OWA from outside then you should try it first.

what address do you use in the wm5 is it the same address as outlook web access?  I used the internal address for the server when I am in the office and it works fine.  I have also read that you need some type of certificate.

If you want to use the feature correctly and securely then you will need an SSL certificate.
The SSL certificates from GoDaddy are trusted by the Windows Mobile devices and cost just US$20 a year. The same certificate will protect OWA, OMA, RPC over HTTPS etc. You can then close port 80 and only open port 443.

It will work over port 80, but your username and password will go across in the clear and can be easily sniffed. The address that you enter will be the host name part for OWA - so mail.domain.com - no /exchange or anything else on the end. It needs to be a fully resolvable address. If you aren't using an SSL certificate then ensure that you have deselected the option about it being secure.

The basic certificates that both companies provide is fine. If you are going to use RapidSSL which is the one I normally suggest, I tell people to use the FreeSSL certificate first, which is valid for 30 days. That gets you used to the process.
The only drawback is that RapidSSL certificates are not trusted by Windows Mobile natively, you have to install the root certificate yourself - that isn't difficult and has been discussed numerous times on this site.

The process for SSL certificate isn't difficult, both suppliers provide help pages that guide you through the process.
