  • MS Exchange 2003 using Pop3 Connector

    I was wondering if anyone knows a way to use the pop3 connector in Exchange but have the email remain on the pop server for another few days after the connector downloads the emails. Just like in a stand alone Outlook environment you can check off the box in advanced to leave a copy on the server for X amount of days.
    Thanks Avi

    Do you mean that you want to POP to your Exchange server and leave a copy of the messages on the server? If so, this is controlled by the client not the server. Set the Outlook options as you stated them in your post. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you are asking?

      That cannot be done with the native POP3 connector. You would have to use a third party tool.

      Better still use Exchange as it was designed and get the email delivered directly to the server by SMTP.

        Thanks for the suggestion. But what I am trying to accomplish is having two portable devices (ie. Blackberry and iPhone) also receiving emails. I do not want to forward the emails from the exchange out, because then you cannot reply to the email without retyping the address. I need to be able to have the emails download to my PDA before exchange downloads them to the server. And I don't want to have exchange download from the pop server less frequently.

          I'm not understanding what you are asking. Exchange doesn't "download" anything. Exchange stores emails sent to your domain and delivers it to the appropriate mailbox. The mailboxes are stored on the Exchange server, so the email doesn't "download" to anywhere unless you POP to the mailbox and "download" it to a pst file on a client computer. You can configure almost any PDA these days to POP to your Exchange server mailbox and download a copy of your emails. Just make sure that you configure the PDA to leave a copy of the messages on the server.

            Let me explain again. They are using a pop3 connector in exchange 2003. When the emails download from the pop3 email host server using the exchange server they are removed from the pop3 email host server. Just like in Outlook you can choose to leave a copy of the email on the server (pop3 server) when you setup Outlook using a pop3 account (not exchange) I was wondering if I can do the same using exhange with the pop3 connector? Blackberry's are unable to wireless sync to the exchange server without the Blackberry premium software loaded on another box. Palm Trio's are capable. So the problem lies when our exchange downloads the emails before the Blackberry server.

            Thanks.

              The response I gave earlier in this question is correct - it is not possible with the native tool. POP3 is designed to remove the items from the Exchange server.

              Whatever you are are currently using for Blackberry integration should be possible with the Exchange server instead, by simply opening the relevant ports. However the best solution for Blackberry is to use a BES. BES Express is free for the first device and the cost of the CALs for the next 14.
