How to open internal links on an iphone/ipad from MS exchange

All,
I have an exchange 2007 server which supplies emails to our company and our mobile devices.  What we are missing is the ability to open internal document links sent by email from our file server on mobile devices.  
I have tried this with:
Standard email account
Exchange OWA
Using Cisco Anyconnect VPN

None of these are successful.  I am able to connect with the VPN and then with a file browser app get to my filserver and open any document (sort of like a corporate private drop box) but this isn't what the company is looking for.

Has anyone been able to do this or have any ideas I might try?

Thanks,

pretty sure this can't be done directly, as you have to have the network shares mounted on each device for the hyperlinking to work.  You can try to add them manually, but this will be a pain for 99% of your users and i haven't tested it for the 6 devices we have.  The closed eco-system doesn't make it easy to files on/off.

to be honest we use Dropbox for the ipads and droid mobiles or our private FTP cloud service which allows us to use unique share URLs.

You could try the manual commands on your iPad file browser:

smb://server/share/path/tothe/file

afp://server/share/path/tothe/file
