    If you already have an exchange server you could use Outlook Web Access, it allows my staff to access outlook anywhere.  Other options would be to set up a VPN to allow work network access from anywhere, thus allowing an outlook connection to the server and working from home.  Or if you guys don't mind paying extra, you could get Office 365.  It's cloud based email with a full office implementation and document sharing.
