We are running Exchange 2003 SP2 on 2003 servers.  Can Exchange be configured for both exchange cache mode and pop/smtp functionality or is it an either or situation.  I ask because we have outside contractors who need to have our company email addresses but also don't want to have to use two seperate instances of Outlook to track email and other items like the calendar and tasks.  As it stands now they have to VPN in to see thier email for our company.  It would also be great if I could configure the rest of our users who use laptops to have two email accounts configured on their Outlook client so that when they are in the office the exchange cache mode mail account settings would be used and when they are out of the office the pop/smtp account settings would be used without duplicating the email.  Any articles or websites that are helpful would be greatly appreciated.  

Also, could I use virualization software to split our one exchange server and do it that way?

Thanks in advance!
