Using Outlook at home to get company email
Posted on 2006-11-21
I have a situation using SBS 2003 and exchange.
When someone from the company sends an email to email@example.com it will be routed internally with exchange server. Same will be true if they send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I send an email to email@example.com from an external email (such as gmail or yahoo) it will be sent to the pop 3 email site that they set up a while back.
If I send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from an external site, it will go to the exchange server.
At the company they set up their outlook clients so that they retrieve email from the exchange server and the pop 3 server.
So, the situation I have now, is that the owner wants to send an email to his wife. He had an account created for her, but she doesn't work at the office anymore. She retrieves her email from home using Outlook and uses the Pop3 email account option from outlook to retrieve her emails from the pop 3 site they created. When the owner sends an email to her, it goes directly to the exchange server, and she is unable to get the email from home.
Is there anyway around this? Can I set up Exchange so it will automatically send emails to the pop 3 server if it's sent to this one paritcular account from an internal email account? Or is it possible to set up her outlook client so it could access the company's email using outlook web access?
