Remote Email Access question

My CEO has asked that we look into ways to connect a remote, PC toting employee to Email using Outlook who's in another country and not a member of our local domain (though he could be).  He (the CEO)  has trouble understanding why he can (so easily) connect from, say, Singapore using his Mac (using Entourage over http) and how it seems so difficult setting up Outlook.  He got the "difficult" part from my being a proponent for use of OWA for remote PC users but I have also been under the impression that either:

a)  you can't setup Outlook to connect to a non POP enabled, domain based, Exchange server behind a corporate fire without a VPN connection wall OR
b) it isn't that easy setting up Outlook OR
c) it may not be as convenient, secure, or any number of other issues.

How would you execute this if it's doable and please set the record strait for me.  Thanks.

I know this question is a little old...

Which version of Exchange are you using?
If it is Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 then you should be looking at RPC over HTTPS. This is a secure VPN-less connection to Exchange that uses HTTPS traffic and goes through the standard port 443 for https, so can go through most firewalls.

If it isn't Exchange 2003, or you don't meet the requirements (Windows 2000 domain, Exchange 2003 on Windows 2000) then there is no easy way. RPC over HTTPS is a new feature designed specifically for this scenario.
