Most of the suggestions you've received on this topic don't address one of
the fundamental issues you mentioned, spotty dial-up internet performance.
Other than using a technology that bypasses the need for dial-up (such a
wireless solution such as a Blackberry), you're options are very limited. I
once again suggest trying the Blackberry; you might be able to get a local
vendor to provide a trial of the service, paying only for the service time
used, to introduce it to your boss. Vendors often extend this kind of offer
to businesses, especially for the head honcho, hoping that it will generate
further excitement and, thus, business. Check with your current cell phone
vendor to see if they offer them.

The Blackberry does not absolutely require the server-side component to
work, so you could avoid that expense initially anyway.

I don't have Exchange 2003 - and it may be a while before I do.

Hi Knicki,

OMA is a watered down version of OWA used mainly for PDA access. I use it
sometimes, but ActiveSync is way cool and included with Exchange 2003, so
you
don't have to pay for Blackberry add-on's. Very nice with the new Compaq
PDAs. I use it extensively on the road and the road warriors love it because
it uses Windows conventions they're already famililar with.

Hi,

RPC-over-http is another good solution, as is OWA.  For users with PDA's,
OMA
(or Blackerry but that is an add-on with additional costs).
