I have Exchange Server 2007 and have Outlook Anywhere enabled on it per Microsofts instructions. How do I add an exchange account to a remote computers Outlook 2003 client? Thanks.

It is no different to how it was done with Exchange 2003 and RPC over HTTPS.
If the machines are on the domain you configure it as normal and then add the additional settings.
If the machines are off the domain then you have to do a few other steps.

I have both on my web site here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/rpc-http.asp

That looks exactly like what I am looking for. I will let you know if I have any problems along the way. Thanks.

It turns out that I was experiencing two problems:
1. I was getting a certificate error because my client machine didn't know who the CA was (had to install those certs)
2. Had to append mail.mydomain.com:6001-6002;mail.mydomain.com:6004; to the end of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Rpc\RpcProxy\ValidPorts on the server (single server configuration)

Once I did that, everything started working. I have one other question; on the remote client machine, everytime I start Outlook it asks me for my login credentials even though I have previously checked off "Remember my password". Why is this and how can I prevent it? (I am using NTLM Authentication on a laptop that is a domain member). Thanks.

Do you have integrated authentication enabled on the virtual directory on the Exchange server? It shouldn't prompt you - I am here at the moment with three machines connected to E2007 using Outlook 2003 on Outlook Anywhere and none of them prompt.
