I am after idea's on the best way to do this for a single user. We only have a single server (no proxy) and cant justify a second server for this! One bridge seams too expencive ($2000 for the licenses plus hardware and services) Using a pop account seams too messy (espechally if its xtra!)

Is the screen on the Apache good enough to just setup and run Outlook Web Access? Is there an other solution I have not considered?

exchange active sync ?? its free not much to configure and can also use SSL for security.

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

One option is open the IMAP ports on your server (do Exchange 2000 has IMAP support?). This way you can synchronise emails using the IMAP protocol, instead of downloading emails over POP3 from the same server.

OWA is not a good idea, but OMA (Outlook Mobile Access) would be good - for the time being, since OMA is being removed in the future Exchange 12 version.

OMA is only possible with Mobile Information Server 2002, which is no longer available unless you have access to MSDN (which is only for evaluation or development use only anyway).
