We use a Cisco 3015 VPN Concentrator.  It's rock solid and very easy to
use.  We also have Blackberries for users that can't wait for an
internet connection to check their email.

Subject: How do you connect Email Clients on the Road


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.
