What's the best solution for connecting remotely to Exchange?

i have a client who just moved to china.  the problem is now that we have a exchange server here totally separate from their exchange server and they need access to the guys in china's calendar's.  i have decided to just connect my client's outlook using rpc over http to the china server but that doesn't resolve getting her us email because they have a different email address in china.  the user is not very tech savvy and get's very frustrated in change so i don't think using the owa for china account and outlook for the us account will work for her.  are there any other options you guys can think of?

i'm having a hard time following this.  who needs to get the us email?  the person in china?  the only two ways to access an exchange mailbox are outlook or outlook web access.  

she could use the basic OWA client if that would be easier.  

you could setup a machine here and use go to my pc or something similar so the person in china could remote into the machine here, open outlook and check her us email.

it's very complicated situation and i'm like you, she just might be stuck in using 2 machines.  the one user (here in the states) is trying to access her boss's calendar (in china).  problem, she's not very savvy with the computer so keeping it as simple as possible is my dilemma.  the other issue is that she has a blackberry and i'm sure she's going to want her blackberry hooked up.

her boss could publish his free/busy info from his calendar to the internet.

another thought---she could use her blackberry to sync with her bosses calendar

train her to use the basic interface in OWA-if she isn't computer saavy it will work for her
