WIndows 2003 server pop3 smtp email in Outlook in and out of the office

By nblake ·
I am trying to figure something out and I am not sure which way to go. Thanks to several people posting back to me here I have got a lot farther then I thought on my server project. Basically I have a small office with 3 people setup on server 2003 running AD, DSN, DHCP, and now a pop3/smtp. I have a full copy of Exchange, however since the office is so small, I couldn't see the reasoning for loading it.
The email and website are actually hosted by webhosting company.
My dilema or problem is that 1 of my users is using Outlook 2003 and wanting to be able to get his emails, sent items, contacts, calendar, etc not only while he is in the office, but also when he travels to hotels etc. He wants to be able to open his outlook on his laptop and boom, everything is there.
He has a desktop in the office with outlook and he has a laptop with outlook he takes with him when he travels. He basically wants both outlooks to be synched up.
How do I do this
I have the pop3 service installed and running on the 2003 server and have him setup with a mailbox. I tested it, and he can receive just fine, but can't send. He is getting a relay error. I have a few things to try for that, but not sure how to handle the above.

Thanks in advance.

WebEX PC Now

Have you considered WebEx PC Now? He would actually be logging into his PC whereever he travels. There is a free trial period if you wish to test it.

Do some research on RPC over HTTP (HTTPS). This is what you want.

Try this out

by admin In reply to mail server

in your users outlook go to TOOLS>EMAIL ACCOUNTS. Click on there work e-mail and click change. Click on Click on more settings then click the advanced tab, under delivery option check the box that says leave a copy of mail on the server. By doing this any account that has not been updated with all changes to the mail box will get the mail.
