Connecting to Exchange (mail and calendaring)
When connecting to Exchange from outside Virginia Tech (and not using Weboutlook) you may need a VPN connection first. This depends on your Internet Service Provider's policies. The VPN does not secure your connection: it only provides an on campus ip address which is necessary to connect to some services.
