The only REAL answer is proxy server or some other firewall (proxy will allow you outlook access)
It`s the responsible thing to do .

Place a firewall between the internet and your network. In addition you can apply security settings on your exchange server (Challenge Response Auth., etc) But the firewall is the most important part. Exchange/NT is as secure/INsecure as YOU make it.

I have configured a smiliar service here.

We allow remote users to dial in and using a web browser can connect to the web-exchange server.

If you want users to use webaccess over the LAN only then just install it from the CD and off you go!! The user will have to authenticate when they try to use it!.

If it is via Internet or Dialin, a firewall would be a secure way of keeping people out!

Hope this helps

First, you're going to need to install IIS 4.0 (Internet Information Server) ON THE SAME BOX as your Exchange server. You must do that to use NT Challenge/Response - otherwise you'll have to use clear text.

Second, I agree with the above for a firewall/proxy. There's way to many options to beging a discussion about that. The simple way (if you have backoffice on your exchange server) is to install MS Proxy right on your Exchange server. I'm not saying this is the most secure, just thequick and easy way. Other firewall options (Raptor or Checkpoint) can quicky run to $20k on a small network of a few hundred users with a dedicated machine.
