When Accessing mailbox using MAPI client [Outlook] or sending email using MAPI client [Outlook], I wonder if Outlook needs first to go through CAS Role or straight to Mailbox server role .

Thanks

In Exchange 2007 and 2010 you need the Client Access Role to access the mailbox. You will also need the Hub transport role to send e-mails.

in Exchange 2007 MAPI connections will be to the mailbox server, in exchange 2010 MAPI connections are done to the CAS servers.

Microsoft Link I posted above, talks about the client that goes through CAS server, I have not see MAPI client (Outlook). it looks like it is used as the old Front End Server.

Again in exchange 2010 ALL CLIENTS access is through the CAS including MAPI (exception is the public folder access), it is now a complete 3 tiers technology.

In exchange 2007 MAPI clients will connect to the Mailbox server directly all other clients to the cas (like the old FE server)
