In one of the meetings I sat with the external consultants 'Outlook Anywhere' was mentioned.
Outlook Anywhere is one of the Exchange 2007 feature that Microsoft has developed. The consultant mentioned that the Outlook Anywhere is a remote access method for Outlook Clients to connect through the internet to the exchange server without the need for a VPN.
This was not configured in our Exchange Server and explained the two main benefits as follows:
- There is no need for a vpn connection to be on to access Outlook Anywhere.
- If there is an internet connection available then you can just login to Outlook Anywhere and access your email.
