We are running a MS Exchange 2000 server behind our firewall. We do not
have any problems with our users accessing it from within our LAN (of
course), however, we do have a number of employees who work remotely, at
least part of the time. In order to accommodate them, we enabled
Outlook Web Access across an SSL connection. Our remote users have
requested that we go a step further and enable POP3 access to the
system. Now, I am against doing this, because I question the security
aspects of this. I have suggested we enable IMAP4 over SSL to allow
remote access. However, our users are sticking to their guns on POP3
access. We are working on implementing VPN access, but due to
logistical constraints, we will not be able to implement it for a few
months. We would like to find an interim solution as soon as possible.
Question: What is the most secure/flexible method of accessing an
Exchange 2000 server from across the Internet? Is there a more secure
option that I just don't see?
Thank you in advance for your assistance,
