Hi,

we have couple off site users that need to send their outgoing e-mails thru our exchange server. I'm not sure how to approach this, as as far as implementing a secure solution to this issue.
a little background about the server, we have a anti virus solution listening on Port 25, which then forwards the e-mails to a spam filter then e-mails get forwarded to exchange at a different Port. i thought of using SSL authentication, but the anti virus solution we have doesn't handle that . OWA is not an option here, so i'm not sure how to do this.:confused:
any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

If you've already set up Exchange accounts for these users, and have an active VPN into your network, it would just be a question of setting up the VPN and then Outlook on the user's machines. You may or may not have to edit your host file with the Exchange Server name and IP depending on how your network is set up. But in any event, this should be a pretty simple process.

Yes VPN is definitely a solution but not for these users.. they're sales people constantly on the road.
the only item they need from our network is e-mail everything else is installed locally to their machines.

Okay so they're on the road. That is what a VPN is for. They would still require internet access for any type of email. If you want them to connect to your mail server, you still would need some kind of remote access solution, and a VPN would be the most secure.

i don't think VPN will be a good solution for these two employees, i understand they can connect thru VPN and download their mail to an offline folder to access while on the road, but i would like to keep them setup the way they are, except change their outgoing mail server to be ours instead of the ISP's since ATT doesn't allow that anymore.

of course and that's what they're using now.. the issue is not recieving e-mails it's sending e-mails out, i would like to allow them to use our server and send e-mails out to other domains.
