Connect to Exchange outside network

Greetings All,

A client of mine is opening a small satellite office. The email is currently being hosted on the server in the main office. How do we give folks access to their email via outlook without having them connect to a vpn. I know for macs and cell phones i can just enter the external address for the exchange server and it works. I can seem to get this to work the same way on outlook clients.

Thanks In Advance.

You can use exchange Active Sync (Outlook Anywhere), or if they do not require advanced functionality setup POP3 or IMAP on exchange. The other option is to just have them use Outlook Web Access.

Outlook Anywhere:

What Outlook Clients do you have and what error do you get if you test on www.testexchangeconnectivity.com ?

What version of exchange that you are using..
If it is Exchagne 2003 then you can make use of RPC over HTTP.

 If Exch2007 is in place use outlook anywhere.

But as a work around you can suggest the user to use OWA.

What version of Exchange?  Make sure the clients have the Server Certificate installed, and that the cert is setup correctly.
