Remote access for emails

By friscojw ·
This is probably an easy question. I am working with a new company. They are using a Windows 2003 server with Exchange. What is the simpiest way to assess the email when I am out of the office. In addition I was unable to send using the companies extension while I was connected from home. I am runnign XP Pro. Can the Outlook on the server be web enabled? IS this a risk?

Outlook Web Access:

Or, simply create yourself a VPN which is supported in W2k3 and Win XP.

I am not sure why the onsite engineer has made it difficult. He said "Twart" certificate for $350 is needed for security?

Outlook Web Access is enabled by default in Exchange 2003. To allow access from outside the network, you would need to NAT (better yet PAT)the internal IP address of the email server to one of the external IP addresses of your network assigned by your isp. For better security, you could enable SSL web access (multiple articles out there on how to do that)

The only way would be to buy a 350.00 certificate from Thawte so that webmail could be opened to the server on port 443 for SSL transactions.


Is this correct?

Personally, I hate outlook web access. I use the full Outlook client remotely to read my e-mail through an IMAP connection.

IMAP needs to be enabled on the Exchange server in the services list and through the Exchange Services Manager and the port needs to be properly forwarded on the router. It's great, IMHO...
