Hi Vicki,

You can configure Outlook 2002 to use IMAP4 and even secure IMAP4. He
will probably not even notice much of a difference. One thing you'll
need to do it create an SMTP server for him to use, because IMAP4
doesn't handle sending messages.

HTH,

We use Outlook 2002 right now - and that seems to be the easiest for him
to
work with but he has so much trouble with the VPN that I need to set up
a
different solution - so how does the IMAP solution work?

Hi Vicki,

How about IMAP4? I've put that together for many customers by publishing
secure IMAP4 through my ISA firewalls. Works great and every box has
Outlook
Express, so you can set that up for him pretty quick and easy.

What type of interface does he like best for his e-mail client?

List:

I have tried with my boss to get him to use VPN and it is the grumpiest
experience for him.  He gets kicked off and I cannot track down why - 

Sometimes it works - sometimes not. . . He is an old AOL user and I am
trying
to get him off that.  But does anyone have a solution that works for
POP3
that can get to a server anywhere in the US?  

We tried an EDGE card and that was tooo slowwwwww. . . I really need a
solution for this guy - he lands in places where the internet connection
if
iffy at times.  We have not tried POP3 because the server situation
changes
wherever he goes and he needs the simplest solution so he doesn't have
to
change things frequently - but I have not used POP3 that much so I am
thinking I may have missed something in the training.

Thanks for listening to my not so bright question . . . And any ideas
are
appreciated.  There must be a simple solution - 
Oh - I forgot - we have Exchange 2000 and he does not like the Outlook
Web
interface.
