Exchange '07 over HTTPS from Remote Site
Posted on 2012-08-15
I have a remote site that has a T1 for MPLS connectivity. They have about 15 users, but they use Exchange a lot because they used shared mailboxes. Using PSTs is not an option, so they store all their data in Exchange, which would be fine, but we've had instances where some of the shared mailboxes get corrupted, or we have a new user, or have to re-format their computer... whatever the case, they end up having to download several gigs of information on those shared mailboxes whenever we do that.
When that happens, that kills their T1 for a couple of days.
Here's my question. They have a good cable internet connection, so I would like to have these users use the internet for email and leave the T1 for their regular order entry work. I would like to see about the possibility of deploying Exchange 2007 over HTTPS for them, but please note that they are inside my network. I've tried to change the host file for my exchange server, but it just doesn't connect.
Has anybody done this before? Is there anything else I need to change?
