  • Outlook 2010 and SBS 2003

    Here is my scenario....

    We have SBS 2003 at the main office.
    We have email hosted through another company.
    We have 18 users on-site
    We have 11 sales people off-site at different locations
    Outlook on-site is setup with both the Exchange connection, and the POP account as the default.
    Outlook off-site is setup with just the POP account

    Here is what I am trying to do....

    We would like all the email to come down to the Exchange server for backup purposes. So, I want to setup the POP connector for SBS to pull the email down from the hosted account.
    Of course the users in-house will then have Outlook setup with the Exchange account.
    I already have all the forwarders in place for the Exchange server to be able to send email. I also worked with the ISP on getting the reverse PTR records created.

    The problem is the off-site sales people. I have looked at Outlook Anywhere, but can't get it working. What other options are there. I suppose I could set up POP accounts in their Outlook pointing back to the Exchange server and set to leave all messages on the server. But I figured there has to be a better way.....

    Any thoughts? I have done all the usual searching on Google. Just not finding any real help.

    thanks

    Outlook Anywhere is definitely your best option. What errors are you getting with it? It's also worth using testexchangeconnectivity.com on your domain to see what it throws up.

      Thanks for the quick reply!

      I don't get any errors. It just keeps asking me for a username and password. Even though I know without doubt, that i am using the right domain\username and password.

      I forgot about the URL you suggested. I've used it many times for activesync testing. Never thought about using it for this.

      I ran the test and everything passed except for...
      Testing HTTP Authentication Methods for URL https://mail.domain.com/rpc/rpcproxy.dll.
      The HTTP authentication test failed.

      Additional Details
      A Web exception occurred because an HTTP 501 - NotImplemented response was received from Unknown.

      Any thoughts?

        Has Outlook Anywhere been setup? I can't remember (been a looong time since I did an SBS 2003 install) if it's setup automatically, I think it might be in R2 but not in the earlier version.

        This article from the main site should help you check over the configuration.

          RPC over HTTPS, aka Outlook over the Internet in SBS 2003 isn't enabled by default. You will need to run the Connect to the Internet wizard and choose the option for it to be enabled. Outlook Anywhere name only applies to Exchange 2007 and higher.

            Thanks for the information. Going through the article cruachan posted, it was determined that everything was already setup, there were just permission issues on the RPC folder in IIS. Once adjusted, I have everything working as it should.

            Thanks again!!
