We have Exchange 2003 and have client to access his personal mail outside the corporate network, currently he's using his outlook as a imap client and we're facing odd glitches..

Is it possible to configure exchange 2003 to pickup the mail from imap server and drop it to client outlook?
client is also using blackberry device so it should able to sync as well.
thanks

No it is not, IMAP is not a collection protocol, it SYNC's, POP3 collects.

It's not possible to do what you are trying to do.

Why are you not using RPC-HTTPS?

Hi,

Please see the link below for assistance in configuring RPC over HTTPS. Changes will be required on his Outlook client, but it will be a more secure method:

Are you talking about your user accessing his personal mail from an outside source or accessing his work mail when working outside the office?

Regards,

RobMobility.

I've never tried it, but I think this is claiming to be an IMAP collector:
http://www.exchangepop3.com
If you search for 'Exchange IMAP collector', you'll find a few of these things.  This sort of addin is meant to collect messages and put them in a mailbox on your server.  It won't just get the messages and send them to Outlook without him having a mailbox on your server.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

Exchange will pickup the mail from imap server and drop it to his outlook.
his blackberry devices is also pointing to the same imap server so any changes should be synced

first of all, Exchange will not collect from IMAP, you should be delivering to your exchange server, or collecting using POP3.

The Blackberry can then use Blackberry Internet Services or IMAP to collect from the Exchange server.

Trying to get Exchange to sync with IMAP and the blackberry is just over complicating it.
