Exchange 2003

Dear All,

we are using exchange server 2003 and outlook client 2003 at our company, now our company has open branch office. at branch office they want to have access of emails via internet.

we took 4 mb internet speed at branch office, now branch office users are accessing mails through internet explorer (http://mail.domain.com) . is there any way to setup the mails permanently, so that users no need to use the explorer evertime to logon into his mail account.

thanks in advance

The simplest way to have it is to connect the branch office through VPN (site to site) this way you can have access to authenticate in your hub domain.
With VPN firewall you don’t need many publication rules in your firewall.
Once clients have access to your exchange server and active directory, you can choose many ways to connect to their mailboxes.
You can choose exchange connection but this connection is bandwinch hungry.
You can choose to enable imap, and use mail application of your choice. (Imap will not suport exchange specific elements like contact, task, and meeting).
You can even choose OWA, because in this case your browser will not prompt you for credentials. (This one is the one I suggest you)
Running RPC over HTTPS will definitely need the purchase of a SSL certificate (GoDaddy or Verisign would do the job).
To make things easier though just set a site-to-site IPSEC tunnel and get the remote users authenticate to exchange server directly as if the were in-house.
