Receiving organisation email through outlook client from home

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

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.

Managing email signatures in Office 365 can be a challenging task if you don't have the right tool. CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 will help you implement a unified email signature look, no matter what email client is used by users. Test it for free!

@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.
