Hi Experts,

I wonder if there is a way to configure an Exchange account in Outlook 2010 for the first time if we are out of the LAN office without any VPN.

Thank you in advance for your help, best regards,

Yes you can configure outlook to connect with your exchange server over internet provided RPC over HTTP is enabled..

Follow the same steps that you will follow while configuring the outline in LAN, only do not click on "Check Name". Click on more settings instead, and configure the details for RPC over HTTP and finish the configuration..

Now try to open outlook and it will prompt for credentials and should connect to your exchange server once the correct credentials are supplied..

Hope this helps..

Thank you, it works well, except that I can't connect with NTLM, only basic authentication works.

What do I need to configure to make it work with NTLM ?

Thank you for your help !

PS : Do you want that I create a new question for that ? I make it with pleasure if you want !

Good to know that it worked well for you Jet-Info!

For your 2nd query, it is not something that you can configure from the client end..

The IIS on the RPC proxy server controls the HTTP session authentication. Probably in your case, the RPC virtual directory is configured to use only Basic authentication. You can try change it to use Basic authentication, NTLM authentication, or both Basic authentication and NTLM authentication. There-after you should be able to use NTLM authentication in your outlook client..

You may go through the Technet article "http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996225(v=exchg.65).aspx" for a better understanding of these configurations..
