What's the best way to configure Outlook 2007 to connect to an Exchange server that is based on a remote network?

We have a local client who is based in a satelite office.  He would like to configure Outlook to connect remotely to his head office Exchange server which is based abroad.  His head office IT team are responsible for the configuration of Exchange.

The client has simply asked us to deal with the setup of his Exchange account in Outlook 2007.

Is there anything specific that we need to do in order to configure his Outlook to connect remotely to their Exchange server or is the setup all needed at the Exchange server end?

Do we just add an exchange account to Outlook as normal?

The client in the satelite office needs to be able to get the full suite of features that you get with Outlook and Exchange (cached account, public folders, OWA etc etc)

thanks in advance.

If the client meets the requirements (Windows XP SP2 or higher, Outlook 2003 or higher) and the server has been configured to support it, then RPC over HTTPS is the preferred solution. The administrators of the remote server will be able to give you information on the configuration of that.

Otherwise for full Exchange functionality it is a VPN.

Exchange will provide IMAP or POP3/SMTP access, but the administrators of the Exchange server need to enable those and adjust their firewall.

The people you should be asking this question to are the administrators of the Exchange server - not a forum. Yes you can access Exchange remotely, but what is required is unique to every server.
