Yes - provided they have your ip - the port to connect to and a password (and query analyzer) then they should be able to

No, they will not be able to query SQL Server Express (or 2005 for that matter) from SQL Query Analyzer.

acperkins is correct

if they were using the "query editor" then they would be able to access it - but query analyzer is depreciated for 2005

I was assuming you were talking about the query editor - I apologise.

If they had the quey editor the steps would be as above - if not then they would need something to query it, they could use something similar to http://www.x-sql.com/LiteEdition.aspx which is a free query tool for mssql 2005

By default SQLExpress does not allow network connections so you also need to enable TCP/IP connections using the surface area configuration tool.

Open this tool up from the start menu and under 'Remote Connections' select 'Local and remote connections', and 'TCP/IP only'
