We are running Small Business Server 2003, most of our employees are offsite and do not want to access email using RWW, so I setup the workstations outllook to access through RPC over https, they don't like that either because they have to click to connect and enter their password each time they want to retrieve email.  They want it to work as if they were in the office.  Is there a way I can set it to automatically connect and save their passwords so it's all done in the background?  Or are there other options?  POP3 and IMAP4 are enable on the user account but I'm not sure how to set those up on the client workstation.  Please help????  Thanks much!

Change the authentication options to NTLM and ensure you have the Mutual Authentication configured - these are in the outlook RPC/HTTP configuration page, as detailed here -> http://www.amset.info/exchange/rpc-http-client.asp

Sure, the server link is http://www.amset.info/exchange/rpc-http-server.asp

When you say "wouldn't connect" what do you mean?  Do you have an error?
