With Outlook Anywhere, the Enterprise Vault Outlook Add-In contacts an Enterprise Vault server directly. The Enterprise Vault client does not route requests to Enterprise Vault using an Exchange Server 2007 or 2010 CAS computer. The Enterprise Vault OWA Extensions are not required on your Exchange Server to support Enterprise Vault access from Outlook Anywhere clients.
In Figure: Example Outlook Anywhere and Exchange Server configuration Outlook is configured for Outlook Anywhere, and the Enterprise Vault Outlook Add-In is enabled for RPC over HTTP connections.
The Enterprise Vault client contacts Enterprise Vault as follows:
By default, the client first attempts to contact the default Enterprise Vault server that hosts the archive.
If that is unavailable, the client uses the RPC over HTTP proxy URL configured in the Enterprise Vault Exchange Desktop policy.
If no URL is specified in the Enterprise Vault policy, then the client uses the Exchange proxy URL configured in the Outlook profile.
With direct connections, all the Enterprise Vault servers that host the archives must be accessible to the internal and external clients. If you do not want to publish multiple Enterprise Vault servers to external clients, then you can use an Enterprise Vault server as a proxy server. A client connects to the Enterprise Vault proxy server, and the proxy server forwards the requests to the Enterprise Vault server that hosts the archive.
