What you need to use is OWA (Outlook Web Access) which is a feature build into Exchange to allow you to access emails via your web browser.
It will require you to open a port on your firewall for access, this can be either port 80 (not ideal) or port 443 once you have implemented SSL encryption with a certificate.

It's not too hard, see the following link:

You can access it by going to http://servername/exchange
(replace servername with the name of your server).

Ideally you will need a static ip address on your router, which you can use to access the server remotely by opening port 443 and forwarding with NAT to your internal IP address of the server.
Then you would access remotely with http://1.2.3.4/exchange (replace with your routers public IP address or domain name).
