How do I setup outlook on my laptop to sync with my office exchange server from home

My laptop was originally setup to sync with my office exchange server from home.  At that time the laptop was never used in the office connected to the network sbs server as a network computer.  It was used only over an internet connection.  A couple of months ago I decided to have a network guy we bring in to work on the server and network to set it up as a network computer.  A couple of days later when I was trying to sync from home it wouldn't work.
Any ideas

Thanks Brad

There are just a couple of changes needed in the advanced configuration of the Outlook account. If you are running SBS 2003 and your comany has remote web workplace enabled log on to that and there is a link "configure your computer to use outlook via the internet". This will give you instuctions specific to your domain.

If not see the following link from "configuring the client" on

Depends on how you connect to the office in the first place. If you create a VPN connection the the answer will be different from if you're using Outlook Anywhere. If you're unsure as to what Outlook Anywhere is the you'll need to ask the person who's administrator of your Exchange server if they're using it or not.
