Outlook for MAC and Outlook for PC

With Microsoft Outlook 2011 for MAC, I do not have to be connected to our company VPN to send and receive emails, but with MS Outlook for PC, I will have to be connected through VPN to be able to send and receive emails.
I also have noticed, that the Outbox is not displayed.

Any idea ?

Thanks

are you able to compare the DNS settings of the Mac and PC running MS Outlook?

BTW, on which version of Outlook the Outbox is not displayed?

try using NSLOOKUP on the PC and Network Utility / Lookup on the Mac to determine if both computers can resolve the same mail servers (POP/SMTP) into the same IP address.

What I think, Outlook for MAC and Outlook for PC work differently.

Outlook for MAC works pretty much like connecting through OWA, Though it has all features either you use it inside the network or outside the network without VPN.
it is like Outlook Anywhere

Regular Outlook for PC, works only inside the Network, as I said unless you use Outlook Anywhere.
