Outlook Anywhere

Microsoft Outlook Anywhere is a software feature that allows end users with Microsoft Office Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2003 to access corporate email and calendars over the Internet from outside the corporate domain without having to log into a virtual private network (VPN). 

All Microsoft Office 365 suite users connect to Microsoft Outlook with Outlook Anywhere. Formerly known as RPC over HTTP, Outlook Anywhere allows Exchange administrators to use Group Policy and the Office Customization Tool (OCT) to manage how end users outside the corporate domain can connect to corporate Exchange servers. Administrators can use the same secure sockets layer (SSL) certificates and firewall rules they use for Outlook Web App.

DansCourses provides a two-part video that teaches how to configure Outlook Anywhere for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.
