    Outlook 2007, Exchange 2003, Off Site

    I have two exchange servers. One backend and one frontend for OWA.
    I brought home the Office 2007 disc, and thought I would try and use Outlook from home. However, I have no idea how to do this.

    Hi,

    You would need to activate "Outlook Anywhere" on the exchange server, once you have done this then if you have a firewall for example: ISA Server you would need to publish the Outlook Anywhere features.

    Bare in mind that if you are doing this you will need to make sure you have a valid UCC Certificate on Exchange and not just a Standard or Wildcard SSL Certificate otherwise the communication will not work.

    But the key is that you must activate outlook anywhere, and use an address i.e. Mail.yourdomain.sch.uk

    Hope that helps,

    James.

    No Problem, if you have any problems be sure to post back here and either myself or someone will be able to give you a hand

    Good Luck! Exchange can be a right pain at times

    how do you enable outlook anywhere and will it solve the following issue;

    exchange server with static IP and me wanting to log into it from home using outlook 2003/2007 so that i can access all of outlook, calender, tasks ect? i have access to the external firewall setting so can open ports if they have to be perminantly open, but my boss is using his iphone so i guess some are alreddy open.

    Outlook anywhere on exchange 2007 is:

    Server Config > Client Access > Enable Outlook anywhere

    Remember: to install RPC over HTTPS

    Add Features > RPC over HTTPS etc >

    *This will work but you MUST have a UCC SSL Certificate otherwise you will get communication problems*

    on Exchange 2003 you dont have Outlook anywhere to enable but you do need to install RPC over HTTPS

    also, the joy with Exchange Server 2003 you dont have to worry about the SSL Cert being a UCC Standard, any normal SSL Cert will work

    in theory yes, BUT! i think (if i remember correctly) there is something else you have to do that you don't get in the tutorial

    Do that, and let us know how you get on it might work for you i just remember when i installed exchange 2003 a while ago now (and i mean a while) i had to do some messing about.

    Edit: These may come in handy for you
