I will note that we are in development of our new Exchange 2k3 rollout, moving from using an external ISP to Exchange.
I am trying to determine the best method for my mobile users to access their email via Outlook 2k3. I will be setting up OWA (will SSL) however I know some users will wish to use their Outlook client regardless.
I evaluated RPC over HTTP and unfortunately we do not have the proper infrastructure at this time. Several users are running Win2k still, not XP, and our global catalog server (along with our entire domain) is Win 2k Server, with several Windows 2k3 member servers. (Exchange 2k3 is on a Win 2k3 stand. member server.)
I assume our next bet is to use POP3 or IMAP, but what kind of impact would that have on the users? (I.E. would they have to switch to a different 'account' in outlook when outside the internal network?) I would prefer to make it seemless as possible, but the rollout to the 2k3 domain won't happen for at least another 6 months. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
