    Are you wanting to configure Exchange Server to retrieve email from an ISP hosted email account? If this is correct, then you will either need to be using SBS Server (as it has a Connector) or you will need to purchase a 3rd party email Connector. Click HERE and HERE for more information.

        If you simply want to check your emails from your home ISP account, then go to Tools->Email Accounts->Add a new email account. I am using SBS 2003 with Outlook 2003 and this is how I set it up. Of course it also depends on whether the ISA has been setup to block/allow the traffic through.

        There is an option to check web mails, ie Hotmail. Hotmail no longer supports this, due to some spam issues I believe. So don't bother with that. You can either link a folder to the web site, or use some third party software to achieve this.
