    Complex Exchange/Terminal Server opportunity

    All creative solutions welcomed to the following problem.

    In our domain our Exchange Server 2003 has now been joined by a Terminal Server (Windows Server 2003 R2). (Woopidoo!)

    TS users will be running an Access program/database (in Access 2003) which invokes Outlook 2003 to send out multiple emails (none will be received back).

    Each remote TS user (not a member of our staff) will come in using Remote Desktop, and will each have their own email account with their own ISP or Hotmail or whatever, with no email on our domain

    We want the emails sent out to have the Return email address to be the corresponding user's email address, which is where any 'Bounce' messages should also be sent.

    What would be the best way of setting up the TS users using ADUC (e.g. should I set up an Exchange mailbox for them?) and Outlook, to achieve the desired objective with minimum maintenance effort and maximum reliability?

    Thanks!

    If Outlook is configured with their e-mail server you should have no problem. Your Exchange server won't enter into the equation.

    Can you give some more detail, please? Where in Outlook would their email address be configured?

    You need to add an account in Outlook. What version of Outlook?

    The Terminal Server has lots of licences for Office 2003 Pro.

    Are the users capable of configuring an e-mail account in Outlook? The details can vary depending on ISP requirments and the e-mail service being used.

    Unlikely - which is why I'll have to do it for them (only a small number, fortunately).

    I've set up a test POP3 definition for one user and tied it to my home email address, and it seems to work fine. But how many people will have kept their password somewhere safe or accessible when setting up username/POP3 server/SMTP server in Outlook or OE all those months/years ago? Another requirement for PSPV, having temporarily turned their PC's antivirus off, perhaps.
