How do your users remotely access their emails?

I can't seem to find a good solution.

I think that the best access from the Internet is by OWA .
The speed that your users will get will be better then any anther way
OWA is installed by default with Exchange 2k and you can see it by typing your ip /exchange

For security if you have enterprise edition than you can do front end and back and that is very expensive or to point your DNS to the real Exchange server and by Firewall you need to close all ports but port 80 must be open

the last you can do if you have Firewall1 is to work with VPN to your network and the open OWA or FW client auto

I have OWA with SSL. Opened SSL port on my firewall, but it still remains a problem.

For example, one day I was in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. I dailed up with ATT Global Dialup service and just couldn't get into my mailbox with OWA, but once I started my VPN and I could use OWA via VPN.

However, another day, the OWA over Internet worked perfectly fine. Again, it was the same # and same ATT Global I used.

Try using Owa Internally http:\\internalserverip\exchange

This "should" work fine if it doesn't then you know there is an issue on the server. If works fine then you know there is an issue on the router or NAT. Check port Forwarding on the router. Check your Firewall and make sure port forwarding is on there as well.

I think you misunderstood me.

It works fine. I know it is because I have tried from so many different places. On every high speed connection, it works perfectly.

But dialup, which is what our salesteam is using, is always a problem

Ok sorry...Do you get the Authentication Screen when you use OWA or does it just go "Page cannot be displayed" in Dialup?

It depends on the time of day or the day of the month.

Sometimes, I get the Security Warning coz I have an internal certificate, and Authentication screen, and my emails. Sometimes, after I login, everything just seems to slow down to a crawl like 200 bytes/sec.

Hmmmm well...I really don't think Its an OWA issue .. I could be wrong though. Are you using IE or Netscape?

What kind of hardware are you running on? Processing SSL can really take a toll on a server if you don't have enough resources (memory, CPU, SSL accelerator). Are you running IPSec or any other encryption pieces on top of it? Every layer adds overhead.

Resource is not the concern. I have a dual cpu Xeon with 2GB memory running Exchange.
