  • SBS Outlook Defaults

    I have spoken with Microsoft to try to eliminate the following problem. My clients are using SBS 2003 Server. They logon and are connected to the SBS Exchange Server.
    They also have a 2nd e-mail account which is on an outside server under a pop3 connection and they want e-mail from it.
    They prefer to mark the pop3 as defualt howevever when they logoff and back on they are set to the local exchange as default.
    Does anyone know a fix for this? Microsoft says it is by design. No fixes.
    Or no alternative setup.

    As Microsoft say - this is the intended behaviour. You could setup the clients to use Outlook Express / Windows Mail to use the POP account instead.

      Don't reconmend you use OE. Most people (especially SBSers) use Outlook and "live in Outlook" all day.
      You could use the POP3 connector to pickup and delliver their mail to the exchange maibox, but the best explanation is here
