One of the nice features of Exchange Server 2007 that helps eliminates those irksome VPN clients (and the associated configuration pain) is the WSS and Windows File Share Integration.

This facility gives you read-only access to WSS sites and file servers sitting inside your network. Very handy if you need a file when you're on the road and no-one is in the office to e-mail it to you, or you can't use Remote Web Workplace to connect to an internal PC.

By default, Exchange Server 2007 on SBS 2008 is configured to allow access to files on remote file servers, but additional configuration is needed. Specifically, the names of the servers need to be added.

Fire up the Exchange Management Console, expand Server Configuration and select Client Access...

...Again, please note that this is read-only access - you will need to save any changes you make locally, then copy the changed file when you get back to the office. If you need read/write access without bothering with a VPN client then using companyweb via Remote Web Workplace is the preferred option.
