Attention 'Mobile' and 'Remote' Outlook Users
By Teresa Downey
Do wish you could use Outlook 2003 from off-site?
Do you use Outlook Web Access, but would rather use Outlook 2003?
If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions and you have Windows
XP, you can now use Outlook 2003 from anywhere. Previously, if you
wanted to use Outlook to read your SLAC e-mail when you were off-site
you would have to start VPN first, but this isn’t necessary anymore. You
just have to make a one-time change to your Outlook settings.
We have enabled a new feature in our Exchange 2003 server which allows
you to use Outlook 2003 from any network. This option modifies the way
Outlook works so that the communication passes over the port normally
used for secure web traffic when you are off the SLAC network. But when
you are on the SLAC network it will work just as it always has. After
making the configuration changes to Outlook, if you can reach the web
with your browser, then you can read your e-mail with Outlook 2003.
