connecting Apple desktop to Exchange 2003

What is the most secure way to directly connect a remote Apple computer to my Exchange 2003 server?  As I understand RPC over Https does not support Apple's OS.  I would assume due to the authentication.  I guess I could install the Apple version of my Cisco VPN client, however, we use port filtering, so, I need to know what ports are required for direct Outlook connection OR another method to connect his Apple to our email server.

Thanks.

You can select Exchange as the connection type for support with exchange as in my screenshot.

Alternatively, you can purchase Microsoft Entourage(Outlook for Mac OS)

He will be remote and/or out of the office connecting via the internet... I have VPN capabilities assuming it uses fixed ports.  Which protocol(s) does it use to connect?  What ports have to be open?

Take a look at this.  using Apple mail should still use the same protocol stream as the native Exchange client does.

Do these instructions assume the computer is a member of the domain?  OR  Can I just simply follow the instruactions and it will connect regardless of whether it's a domain member or not?

no it does not.  The Mac OS will not play as nicely with NTLM and Windows Kerberos as you would like.

However, Apple Mail should work just fine for you when you setup an account.

I would strongly recommend that you get an Entourage license so that your user can play and collaborate with others and their Exchange calendars.
