Outlook Proxy authentication Settings using Basic Authentication option. I have several remote users that have company desktop computers located at their homes. In order to make it simple for them I setup outlook connectivity without the need of first invoking a VPN connection. This will allow them to quickly access their email without first remoting into their office computers.
Based on the above proxy settings, I presume the connection is encrypted even though Basic Authentication is selected. I just want to make sure their password is not sent in plain text. I am thinking not, but thought I'd double check. We host our own Exchange 2010 Standard server as well. Your feedback is appreciated.
