Exchange/Outlook through the Internet

By Laust ·
I would just like to confirm if I can connect my microsoft outlook 2000 to my exchange server at the office through TCP/IP.
our users would like to connect to the internet anywhere in the world and then be able to access their email using outlook/exchange without any dialin or vpn to the server.
I heard it is possible by making some port settings..I would be grateful if someone could confirm it for me with details on how to do it.
Thanks

Exchange/Outlook through the Internet

by leo.valmores In reply to Exchange/Outlook through ...

We have our users enabled to access their mails from Exchange server 5.5 thru the Internet.

You've got to set up the Exch Server so that the Internet Mail service is configured and POP3 and IMAP4 protocols are set. Check with MS KB ID=Q169462 andfrom this walk thru to other references you may need.

With this "extended" capabilities of users to access mails thru the Internet, we strongly recommend to users limit sessions to reading or responding mails. (Pretty soon ussers will demand thatthey use Calendar, Schedules, and other features of Outlook through the Internet!!)

Hope this help and cheers

If you want to do it through the web. You may not need a pop3 service. You will need to use web Outlook access. Simply install IIS and use it to control access it will install the web access extrntions. You can access it by typing "your.domain.com/exchange" it will present you with a logon page for user ID, then the windows logon dialog box, here you type in your local NT domain "Domain\smithj and you password".

I have to agree with the second answer. Outlook Web Access (OWA) works great. It allows total functionality (with some exceptions of course!) to any user who has web access anywhere in the world. We use it here and the users absolutly love it.

OWA through IIS is the way to go. Make sure your IP is routable. Also, if your IP has an InterNIC registered FQDN, then your users can simply enter a friendly URL name to gain access to their mail.
