POP3 or Exchange for Outlook 2010 mobile users

We have an Exchange Server and a growing number of mobile users using Outlook 2010.  When configuring Outlook is there a way to set up the new account as "Exchange" or should we just use POP3 or IMAP.  They use PST to organize files and folders so they'd prefer to connect directly to the exchange server.

They are currently using OWA with no problem but they'd prefer to use Outlook.

Thanks in advance

If you enable outlook anywhere in Exchange Management Console the users can use outlook.

See here for further details:


You just need to create a new profile for Outlook.  Just go into Control Panel -> Mail.  Go to the profiles and make a new one for Exchagne.  Then make sure that "Prompt for Profile to be used" is selected.  The user will be prompted when they open Outlook.

The previous post is just telling you that you need Outlook Anywhere setup in order for them to access Exhcnage from outside of the office.  You would need to setup an SSL cert and configure Exchange to allow Outlook Anywhere

My post is explaining how to configure outlook anywhere because that is the correct way to configure mobile users to use outlook instead of using pop3.

If you don't configure outlook anywhere you will not be able to connect to an exchange mailbox if you are not on-site.

Sorry for the delay  getting back, traveling.  That was exactly what I was looking for.  Worked like a champ.
Points to you.
