I have a customer with a VERY old Small Business Server 2003 standard.
They are accessing Exchange externally from Iphones with a SSL certificate issued to REMOTE.COMPANY.COM.

Now the customer asked me to enable the use of Outlook 2010 clients from the WAN connecting via HTTP/RPC.

What needs to be done (if any) on the server to accomplish this and how do I configure the clients? :-)

    This is SBS not server standard. With SBS just run the Configure E-mail and Internet Connection wizard under server management, don't change anything except under services (such as OWA, RWW, etc.) and just check the box "Outlook anywhere", and finish the wizard.  That is it, and make sure port 443 is forwarded from the router to the SBS, but it probably all ready is.

    I think the feature is called "Outlook over the Internet" in the SBS wizard...
