Hi
We did a transtion from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010. I found something interesting which i was nor aware. I normall take  my work laptop to home and  i  connected my laptop to the internet and was browsing internet and i opened my outlook client on my laptop and it was saying connected to microsoft exchange . How is this possible. I have seen this only when i connect my laptop into the my organisation network and i receive email in outlook client.

If iam able to receive my organisation  email  through my outlook client from home it will be very useful for  all users to use outlook client at home to connecrt to our organisation exchange 2010. How do i tell my organisations users to configure their home PC to connect to our exchange server.

Any tutorials will be helpful

Thanks

Outlook Anywhere!

This is a feature that allows you to add your email address and password into Outlook and Outlook will search for and configure Outlook for you (assuming all is configured on the server correctly, which it sounds like it is).

It sounds like you are set up with Exchange over RPC or Exchange over HTTP.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

@AustinComputerLabs - In Exchange 2010 / 2007 the RPC over HTTPS feature was renamed to Outlook Anywhere.

Your link relates to Exchange 2003 also - the questions states clearly Exchange 2010.  Please read the question more carefully in future.

Thanks

We have implemented SAN cerificate for OWA. if i  use outlook  client from home to connect to our exchange servere will this be a secure communication.

Also please send me some tutorials so that i can tell my staff to connect their home PC to our  organisation exchange server and start receiving emails.
