A new installation of SBS 2008 has 1 remote user in another state.  Other than OWA, is there a setting the remote Outlook can use to access i.e. POP3 type that they can retrieve their email form the exchange server.

Perfer not to go VPN route, but just configure Outlook to work.

Thanks

Hi,

Create the user account and activate the POP3 Exchange service, in the SERVICES panel.
Make sure you open the IP Port 110 on your firewall towards your SBS2008 server.

This will also make all other accounts available through POP3.

Cheers,
Andy
