By and large, hosted Exchange solutions make use of Outlook via RPC over
HTTPS. VPN solutions (either hardware or software) preclude quick and
easy deployments.

You must be running at least a particular patch level of Outlook 2003
(or greater) in order to use it, and a copy is typically included in the
service by the provider.

I would research RPC over HTTPs with respect to Outlook in order to
decide how secure it is.

I'm sure at least some of the folks who offer hosted Exchange would
also offer a VPN service whereby the Exchange server wouldn't be
exposed to the general Internet (or to other servers for other
customers), but would be isolated with all appropriate network, host
OS, and application BCPs, and accessible only via a VPN of some sort.
