We have a company email account on an outside server.  One of our principles does not use or want to use Outlook.  How do we give him access to send and receive emails from his company email account?

Give him email webaccess (Browser). Now most of the company provide webaccess.
Request for webaccess URL from the hosting company and give him the same.

What I suggest is to make him understand about outlook features/benefits.
Webaccess has limited features comparing to Outlook

Depends what you have open, and what he wants to use.

Exchange has support for webmail, rpc-over-https (used by most smartphones, such as android or iphone), imap(s), pop3(s) and so forth.

You may have some or all of those running - if he wants to use (say) thunderbird, he can, but he won't get calendering and will need imap(s) access to see his email.   If he wants to use an iphone, then he can use that with rpc-over-https which comes as standard if webmail is enabled.

"rpc-over-https (used by most smartphones, such as android or iphone)"

Just to correct that, as it is wrong.
RPC over HTTPS is Outlook Anywhere, which requires Outlook 2007 or higher.
Mobile phones use ActiveSync.

Although personally I would get the CEO to tell the staff member to use Outlook, as without it they will be unable to collaborate with the others.

Simon.
