If I was to set this up, would the users when sending mail send out via their local smtp server or does this go through the exchange server that they are working on?
I know this is getting a little off the topic, but I am curious on peoples thoughts as I haven't used MAPI / RPC over HTTPS before
It is definitely more bandwidth than pop as pop only has to receive once and then it is done ... it never does anything else. That said, the overhead actually isn't that much.
If you set this up mail would go out through your Exchange server ...
How much bandwidth / users do you have?
