Improving Your Outlook

Using Outlook while away from the office can greatly enhance your productivity. If you routinely travel for business, you can work on the plane, in the airport, or in the hotel. Even when traveling for pleasure, you'll often need to check in with the office and download critical email. You can use all or some of the methods outlined in this chapter to configure offline access to Exchange Server. Depending on your version of Exchange Server, you have such varied options as VPN, RRAS, and RPC over HTTP. The following scenario revisits Christine, the busy Customer Service manager who needs to take a few days off while her kitchen is being remodeled. She must be at home during the renovations, but she must also remain connected to her office so that she can monitor her department's needs.

Christine is a highly technical, highly available manager. She holds weekly department meetings and keeps in touch with her department members, who are scattered in three different physical locations within the same city, primarily via email. Christine uses NetMeeting and Shared Meeting Workspaces of SharePoint Team Services for all of her collaboration needs. She has DSL Internet access at her home, and will be away from the office for five days during the kitchen remodel. During that time, Christine needs to hold several meetings, schedule employee reviews, and keep up with her email in general.
