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.
