I'll answer the first part. If you user is running an XP Pro SP1 machine with Outlook 2003 then you can setup and run RPC over HTTP which will allow him to open Outlook anywhere in the world and have a complete working Outlook experience.

On the Outlook client you will want to make sure you give him the option to go Offline or Connect when he opens and also setup public and private store in cached mode. Cached mode is a client side setting as well and will help with any slow connections or speed issues.

One more thing, set this up on the LAN and make sure the entire database replicates. This will not be fun if you set it up remotely.

Good luck
