Hi,

My current Exchange Server 2003 sits on out internal network and cannot be connected to from an external source unless throufgh a VPN.

I want to make Outlook available from the web but don't really want to put my exchange server in a DMZ

How would people recommend doing this. I can create NAT's etc

You can use NAT\Static mappings. Basically, you put the front-end on your internal network and only publish the ports you want to give access to.. in this case, TCP port 443 will give you SSL access to the OWA server without opening any additional ports.

You don't have to.. But It is generaly a good idea unless you only have a single server that is Exchange, DC, etc. If that is the case, just redirect 443 to that box.
