    Hi all

    We are using SBS2003 and I am trying to use my Outlook
    2003 at home to reach our Exchange Server at work. I have
    read the "Using Outlook via the Internet" help file and
    have installed Hotfix (SP2) Q331320, and the certificates
    have been installed on my home machine. I have set up a
    new Outlook Profile for Exchange Server, but cannot make
    a connection.

    We have a static IP address (external) which I have
    created a static DNS for i.e.: I have no
    problems using RWW via this domain name, but I could use
    some help to have my Outlook (Exchange) profile connect.

    In the help file, it says to configure the computer for
    RPC over HTTP and in the Microsoft Exchange Server box
    type the local name i.e.: server.example.local

    In addition, under the "Use this URL to connect to my
    proxy server for Exchange" type the following URL -

    Then type the Principal name for proxy server -

    I have tried several different configurations using the
    static DNS that we use but cannot get
    Outlook to connect. Any help would be greatly
    appreciated. Or if you could point me to a helpful site.

    Many Thanks

  2. Hello Bill,

    In Remote Web Workplace's main page, there is an "Additional Links" section
    on the right-hand side.
    The link for "Configure Outlook via the Internet" offers the most complete
    reference for getting Outlook (HTTP over RPC) working.
    If after following this document it still does not function correctly
    please let us know.

    Hope this helps!

  3. I had a similar problem.

    Make a VPN connection, then configure Outlook profile. When connected to
    the VPN, it will be able to resolve the server name and user name. THen you
    can make the communication setting for Outlook over HTTP
