Correctly Setting up Outlook 2003 for Remote Email User.
Posted on 2007-03-29
Using an Exchange email server / Small Business Server 2003 as OS
I have a user, who's only computer on our company network is his laptop. When he is in the office, that is what he uses, when he is out of the office the same. I'm having problems correctly setting up his email so it works smoothly. Currently I have his Outlook set up with an Exchange and a POP3 account, both of which are accessing the same mailbox on the exchange server. I'm sure you can see the problems in this, duplicate emails for one. In the office and connected to the company network/domain, the exchange account works great. Out of the office the exchange account can receive, but not send email. POP3 on the other hand sends/receives in and out of office. I when I added the POP3 account, I tried deleting the Exchange account and was denied until I moved the user's contact information to a new location, which i'm not sure how to do.
All in all, I just need to set up his Outlook so he can smoothly/effeciently access his email in and out of the office whether he is logged into the domain or not.
