Hi. We have an SBS 2008 Server with 5 Domain connected PC's using Outlook 2007 all working well. There is a remote Office with one Outlook 2007 user who needs to collect his email for user@ourdomain.com. He has an account setup on the server but is not connected to the Domain. What is the easiest for him to collect his email without major Surgery to the SBS Server?

You need Outlook Anywhere to be configured on the remote client computer.
Is this setup properly on your server?  Have you got Autodiscover configured for your domain?
Have you got a 3rd party SSL certificate installed on your SBS 08 server?

If you don't want to hassle the server around, set up an simple hardware VPN between te 2 offices.

Yes. Actually we already have a LAN-LAN VPN setup using 2 Draytek Routers...What would we need to do additionally to get the remote email working?

If everything is set up correctely you can just acces the exchange server without being member of the domain. Synchronise the local login credentials with the server credentials and connect to the server.

Check that the client is using Domain controllers to resolve DNS ( otherwise it won't know about the domain )
In the outlook account settings have it "always prompt for logon credentials"
When the user runs outlook they'll be able to log in , the username will have to be in domain\username format ( or possibly username@fqdn )

Success. I have been running it for 3 days now on the Lan-Lan VPN and it works fine. I realise that I need to look into Outlook anywhere later when I get time. Thanks all.
