You can, as long as they are on the same physical network, or VPN. it will just prompt them for a username and password. I would suggest using Outlook Web Access tho, as this is easyer to maintain for you.

It depends on whether those machines can resolve the name of the Exchange server correctly. If they cannot then you will have problems. Is there a firewall separating the Exchange server from those machines?

You haven't said which version of Exchange/Windows this is, but if you are using Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 or higher then you should look at using RPC over HTTPS which is designed for non domain members to get access to Exchange over the internet using a single port.

If you are using Outlook 2007 exclusively and have Exchange 2007 configured correctly with the autodiscover parameters then Outlook Anywhere ( as RPC over HTTPS is now called) should be setup automatically using the SSL certificate information. There are a lot of ifs and buts to get it to work, but it does work.

Otherwise it is manual settings which is the same as it was on Outlook 2003.

The boxes have different labels, but they are in the same places.
