1. How comfortable are you with Exchange ?

2. Which version of Exchange are you using ?

3. Does your server name reflect your domain name ?

4. How many users require external access ?

5. Which features are required for external access ?

If you are anything less than entirely comfortable with Exchange I suggest you call in specialist help and avoid the issues you are going to have to tackle.

Second chances aren't an option when opening up public access to your exchange server.

There are several ways of going about it which can cushion things slightly, but the security implications here are high and many. It's doable, but I don't recommend it unless you're VERY comfortable with Exchange.

In fact, this is the sort of topic I'm reluctant to comment much on since so much can go wrong. Normally I'd insist on either full remote or onsite access to the Exchange server when I set them up, and I'm worried about the potential for a written instruction or suggestion in here being misread, misinterpreted or, well, you get the picture...

"Taran, May I trouble you to look at my posting in case you can provide me with some advice? click here I have Outlook XP client running on XP Home and am trying to be able to connect to Exchange server 2003 via the internet (HTTP). The 2003 version of Outlook client, the Exchange Server setting's Connection tab has an option to tick to do this. But I can not find the equivalent setting on my XP Outlook client that I can tick to access Exchange server via HTML. Would anyone know where this setting is in the XP version of MS Outlook? Or do I need to upgrade my Outlook to 2003 in order to be able to do this? The IT manager running the network can advise me if I am running Outlook 2003 fat-client but he is not familiar with Outlook XP/2002."

My last reply to this thread ended with my feelings about offering advice on Exchange over a forum. The possibilities of misinterpreting any suggestions or instructions are very real and very serious, and I would prefer not to put your network or you at risk.

You could use Outlook Web Access for simple web based emailing or run your Outlook client over it's connection to the web using RPC over HTTP (Outlook 2003) assuming your Exchange server has Microsoft Certificate Authority (CA) installed, or connect through a VPN connection, or you could...

Exchange is something I prefer to tackle hands on, either onsite or remotely if that option is available, and I don't relish the thought of making this or that suggestion, albeit in good faith, without seeing EXACTLY what your setup is, its firewall(s), current configuration and so on.

I'm afraid I view the potential risks too great here. Call me old fashioned but the implications of what I do, when I do it, are down to me. The implications of what you do though, no matter who suggests that you do it, falls squarely on your shoulders.

There are many layers to your typical Exchange setup that I would prefer to know in full before making any changes or suggestions and, quite honestly, come of those details are not for public view.

Sorry if this is not what you are looking for, but I hope you understand why I am stepping back from this.

Best of luck with it.
