Hi there,
I've setup an exchange server, its nearly there...
I have mail working on the iphone, mail via OWA from anywhere is ok, I can connect internally with all outlook clients and autodiscover functions.

The external connectivity tests for RPC over HTTP are all good :
Connectivity test
I still however can't get an outlook anywhere client of any version of outlook to connect to the exchange server via RPC when external to the network.
I type the server name as mail.dataremember.com and the user name but it just times out.

Any suggestions or diagnostics I can perform which might shed more light on the issue?

Did you setup your connection with basic auth or NTLM?

Hi there,
thanks R--R, the link on petri.co.il was useful in getting me connected and this is working now although I had to select basic authentication to stop the authentication challenge being spammed at me and the speed seems pretty slow, I'll look more at this link and the tests but this has got me a step closer.

The iis settings must be in correspondense to http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2008/02/01/3404755.aspx , if u dont have them ur sure too have prompts and other issues.
