Exchange 2003 Clients

I would like to know whether Outlook can be configured as  POP/IMAP instead of regular MAPI client.
If so, when connecting Outlook(used as POP/IMAP) client to exchange server from inside the network, would this require Front End server to connect to exchange server?
I believe from outside the network POP/IMAP requires Front End as well as OWA, when our exchange Organization has more than ONE exchange server.

Any Exchange expert to clear the confusion up?

Thanks

You need to have the CAS role installed on some server, and connect the outlook clients to that..

Depends on the Outlook version, to answer is generally yes.

No, you just need the IMAP and POP services to be running on the Exchange server.

Can't comment on POP/IMAP from an external network, i've never exposed them even using a FE server.

"I would like to know whether Outlook can be configured as  POP/IMAP instead of regular MAPI client."

Outlook can connect as pop or imap although pop kind of defeats the purpose of using a MAPI/RPC_https client

"If so, when connecting Outlook(used as POP/IMAP) client to exchange server from inside the network, would this require Front End server to connect to exchange server?"

Depends upon your exact configuration, but in general pop, imap , and http are supported when connecting to the back end server

"I believe from outside the network POP/IMAP requires Front End as well as OWA, when our exchange Organization has more than ONE exchange server."

It does not require OWA, if you have more than one exchange server one has to be the front end handling mail flow
