Regarding your answer to my previous question, Can Lotus users access e-mail remotely using a browser without a VPN or secure ID?, as we migrate to Notes, we need a replacement for OWA (MS Outlook Web Access). With OWA, we can login anywhere in the world from any browser and receive our mail. The catch is, the OWA is in the DMZ, but not the Mail servers. All mail is passed through the OWA server. As I understand iNotes, this will not work. You would need your mail server accessible in DMZ, which is not an option. I have looked at WebMailRedirect, but it passes you off to the mail server, too. It requires, from what I can tell, a port open through our firewall to our mail server.
If there is a way to get iNotes to pass through another server, that would be great.
No, I don't know of anything other than appliances that can pass you through. Some of them are great and very secure. They will require passing through your firewall, but they are safe. Whale Communications makes a great appliance that does this, and it isn't just for Domino. Considering how easily hacked OWA is, and how inherently unsafe it is, I never recommend using it. You are better off moving away from it and towards a more secure platform.
