I have a .local domain in SBS 2003, is there a way to access RWW without having a registered domain?

Use the IP address of the external network...
Be sure that you have reverse NAT to the following ports to your SBS server:
TCP/80
TCP/443
TCP/444 (if you will be allowing access to the Companyweb from the internet)
TCP/4125

I take it you're referring to the external IP provided by the ISP. If the IP is static the solution would work. But our external IP address is dynamic. Is there an other way to access the network after the ports are opened?

Yes, you can use a dynamic dns service such as http://dyndns.com or http://zonedit.com.  

However, I'd also suggest that you register a domain name so that you can have your own email identity.

Thanks for the help. I used the dynamic dns service from dyndns.com and it worked great.

Terrific!  Glad it worked for you.

Since it seems as though you are new to EE, I thought I'd point out that it's your responsibility to close your own questions.  For information on how to do this, please see:  http:help.jsp#hs5
