Hi,

Im trying to to setup a user to use a local pc log on and have no vpn. All they need is mail.

I found this but it only shows how to set this up from the outlook end

You will have to configure outlook anywhere on the server.

I am assuming you are using Exchange 2010 and providing you below article.

Hi,

Exchange 2007 is almost same except that it requires RPC over HTTP networking component installed on  Windows 2003/2008 server prior to enabling Outlook Anywhere from Exchange.
Following articles have more information regarding this.

You can also install outlook using a POP or IMAP option.

Most likely you already have this on your server, you just need to tell outlook to use this type of account/email.  If everything is OK on your server I will suggest IMAP, outlook will find the server automatically just by typing the email address.

skyjumperdude : You can disable outlook anywhere for users using below exchange powershell command

Set-CASMailbox -Identity user@domain.com -DisplayName "user Name" -MAPIBlockOutlookRpcHttp:$true

You should have MX, CName, Host and/or A records pointing to your mail server, and yes they should all point to the internal server IP.

skyjumperdude : as stated by hecgomrec , you will have to point autodiscover record to point to your exchange server's public ip address. Once the autodiscover query hits to your public ip address then it should go to your exchange server's private ip address through natting or any other way using which you transfer exchange https traffic from your public ip address to private ip address of exchange server.

Thanks for all the help everyone,

Im still working on refining this.

My other admin notice he can access his outlook with out vpn now, so that means it working but we didnt even configure his outlook to do it.
