Remotely how? Through a dialup on your network, through the internet?

Won't work unless you have some way to connect directly to your office network thru VPN or something similar.

Have you tried using the public IP address of your Exchange Server instead of the server name? I have done this before too, so it does work.

What about OWA?

How is your server firewalled, does it directly touch the Internet?

Can you ping the server by IP addy?

Do you use WINS at work? Do your remote settings match these?

The only way I know how is with OWA or being on a WAN....unless of course your Exchange server isn't behind a firewall then it is open to anyone with the IP address. I think there is a setting in Exchange for external hosts.
