Get work email from home

OWA needs Exchange Server 5.5 (preferably SP3) and IIS. IIS does not need to be installed on the same machine as the Exchange box. It is a reasonably simple install and is covered very thoroughly on the MS site. My suggestion is to also install SSL on the IIS box so that you don't pass your network passwords in clear text when logging on to the OWA page. You can have OWA up and running in a matter of hours if you already have an NT server available for IIS.

I fairly new to this, how would I know that IIS is running? Also would not IIS have to be running for exchange erver to get external email.

Another way you can meet this goal is using outlook express...if you open port 148 on the firewall and configure the clients as IMAP clients then they can access the Exchange Server..now if the exchange server is behind the firewall then you will have to bind port 148 from the exchange server to the proxy.

I used this configuation several places..the IMAP client will leave the e-mail on the server and not download it like POP3..

Good Luck!
