Outlook 2010 VPN problem

Have a SBS server which I use primary as an Exchange server. I have 3 PCs on 3 different locations  connecting to this server using Outlook 2010. 2 PCs are not in the domain, the last one is.

I have no problems getting mail from Exchange when I use the 2 PCs that are not in the domain, but the one that is in the domain has to make a VPN connection first. If I try without VPN, I am asked for the password for the account, and it still does not work (I recon that is because it cannot connect to the domain controller without VPN)

Is there any way to avoid this problem?

All Outlook Clients are configured the same way - the proxy settings are exact the same on all three.

Best regards

Ulf

Exchange profile is not configured to use proxy and thus, it is trying to connect with the internal server name.  In order for Outlook to work from anywhere, then Outlook Anywhere must be used by specifying Exchange proxy settings   refer to link below:

Thank you so much, Mohammed. I was looking blindly at the configuration, and did not observe that I had used Basic Authentication instead of NTLM!
