Are users able to access their mailbox via Outlook Web Access from
outside the firewall?  Does the anti-spam appliance in the DMZ provide
some sort of web interface similar to OWA?

No FE.  Using anti-spam appliance in DMZ to pass mail, but it doesn't
seem to have any support for what we're looking to do here.

IIRC to get push mail you need to be running E2K7.  If not I think
you'll need to use scheduled retrievals.  I think, anyhow.

In addition to opening the port you'll need to make sure RPC/HTTPS is
enabled and flowing through any firewalls in between.  If you already
have RPC/HTTP configured and running, you might want to just point at
your FE server and see what happens.

Oh yeah, and I'm assuming you are using an SSL cert from a trusted root
CA, if not there will be more hoops to jump through.

just dropped an iPhone off at my desk and wants it to be
        configured to send and receive email just like our Blackberries
(with a
        BES server) so they can "test it" on Monday when they go out of
        As I see it, the quick way to do this would be to open up port
443 (SSL)
        on the firewall to our internal Exchange server.  Anyone see any
        problems doing this, or does someone have a better suggestion?
