Configure e-mail for client computers running earlier versions of Windows

noteNote
Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 only runs on client computers running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 3 or Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2. To configure e-mail for client computers running earlier versions of Windows, you can use Outlook Web Access or an earlier version of Outlook.

To configure Outlook Web Access

From the server:

  1. If you have not done so already, start the Configure E-mail and Internet Connection Wizard.
  2. On the Connection Type page, click Do not change connection type.
  3. On the Firewall page, ensure that Enable firewall is selected.
    If you have a firewall device that supports the UPnP framework, you do not see this page.
  4. On the Web Services Configuration page, select Outlook Web Access. You can also select Outlook Mobile Access if you want to allow access to e-mail for mobile devices.
  5. On the Web Server Certificate page, select Do not change current Web server certificate.
  6. On the Internet E-mail page, select Do not change Internet e-mail configuration.
  7. Follow the instructions to complete the wizard.
noteNote
To open the Configure E-mail and Internet Connection Wizard, click Start, and then click Server Management. In the console tree, click Internet and E-mail. In the details pane, click Connect to the Internet.
noteNote
If you have a firewall device on your network that does not support the UPnP framework, you must manually configure the firewall settings required for Outlook Web Access and Outlook Mobile Access. For more information, see Appendix C, "Network Configuration Settings," of Getting Started (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46897). For more information about how to configure the firewall device, see your device manufacturer's documentation.

From the client computer:

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
    • To access Outlook Web Access from a local computer, type the following URL in the address bar:
      https:// ServerName /exchange, where ServerName is the name of the computer running Windows Small Business Server.
    • To access Outlook Web Access from a remote computer, type the following URL in the address bar:
      https://www. RegisteredDomainName /exchange, where RegisteredDomainName is your company's registered domain name.
  2. Type your user name and password, and then click Log On.

To configure earlier versions of Outlook

You must manually install earlier versions of Outlook on client computers running Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows NT Workstation 4.0.

  1. Insert the Outlook installation CD into the CD-ROM drive of each client computer on which you want to install Outlook.
  2. Follow the instructions in your Outlook documentation to install Outlook on client computers running earlier versions of Windows.
