Last Modified: 2012-08-14

We have Exchange2003 Front and backend.
Would it be possible to set to be able to send/receive mails on non-domain-joined PC's Outlook?
We are allowing OWA, OMA and RPC over HTTP connections.
Not allowing POP and IMAP.

Thanks in advance.

If you enable web-outlook on your exchange server, the non-domain user can connect via HTTPS and authenticate as a domain user   (e.g. "[domain]\[user]")

Thanks for your comments.
I might be lacking some info. The problem is that the PC is at user's home. What should I put in "Exchange server name" and "User name" boxes? I'm testing it on a local PC with an external internet line and I of course get "Can't resolve the server name".

Click on "More Settings" and not on "Check Name"
Then go to "Connection" and select the box "Connect to my Exchange using HTTP"
Then click on "Exchange Proxy settings" and enter the URL for RPC/HTTP
