    The POP3 connector has nothing to do with the users collecting email from the server from POP3. It is there for the server to collect email from a remote POP3 server and should only be configured with the SBS management console.

    For users to collect email from the server using POP3 all you have to do is start the service and open the port on the firewall. Nothing else.

    Of course that doesn't mean using POP3 is a good idea - POP3 should be the last protocol of choice, only used if Outlook Anywhere, ActiveSync etc are not available and IMAP cannot be used.

        We also need to understand what you want to do. You're speaking about different functions within an application, and seem to be getting them confused.


        So let's work out what you want.

        Do you want to use the POP3 CONNECTOR to connect to an external POP3 mail server and download all email for your users, and then have them connect to exchange internally

        or

        Do you want to have all the email delivered to your exchange server normally, and then have your users connect using the POP3 SERVICE to retrieve their mail?


        Personally, I completely agree with Simon. WHY Do you want your users to use POP3 to check their email? If you already have exchange (and you do) why not just use Exchange? POP3 is the (almost) oldest mail retrieval protocol there is. It's also VERY VERY insecure - all passwords, and emails, are sent across the network in clear text, so anyone could capture your email.


        There are also PLENTY of guides available on the internet about how to configure both the POP3 SERVICE and the pop3 CONNECTOR (which, again, are different functions) so we shouldn't need to give you any guidance - it's already been done.
