    Re: give Access with outlook outside company.

    When you say sync do you mean downloading all the messages to your home computer??

    Why not get your company to invest in a laptop for yourself and then you can dial in using some sort of VPN software and pick up your mail that way.

    Or you could also use web mail.

    I wouldn't use POP3 to download your mals from your work server, but hey thats just me.

    Does this comply with your IT policy to allow you access to your mails from a home PC??

    BTW as far as i can remember RPC over HTTP is only available in Outlook 2003 and Exchange 2003. I could be wrong though.

      thanks wullieb1 for all your advice...

      i check myself and you right RDP over HTTP is exchange 2003 only.

      i didnt want to open POP3 in my exchange server but i had to give
      a 2nd branch office of our the ability to use mail without creating an exchange server at there offices, and i didnt want them to be connected via VPN all day because i think it takes lot of bandwith... while being connected all day
      (or its just me).

      i wanted to ask u somthing, u said u wouldnt open POP3 protocol at you exchange... can i ask you why ?

      thanks.

        Certainly.

        I wouldn't use POP3 for business unless i really needed to as it, in my opinion can be a pain in the backside to manage.

        I think it all comes down to the end users that i have come across. Each one wants to have the capability to have there mail backed u each night as to help with restoration, now i know you can leave a copy of the messages on the server but i can't remember if this includes sent items. Then you have to contend with users downloading each individual mail from the server, fully i might add, which will ultimately all your bandwidth.

        In your situation i would really think about using web mail as Exchange 2000 supports that no problem.

        BTW we have 3 VPN's setup at our office here and notice very little impact on our internet connection.

        Again this is in my opinion so please take it as you will.
