  • SBS 2008 POP3 Connector Not Forwarding E-Mail

    I have just set up an SBS 2008 Server bit I am struggling with the POP3 connector. I know most people say "Don't use it" but our Internet Connection is not good as we are in a rural area and like the fact that mail is stored on our host.
    All internal e-mail is working OK and outgoing e-mail works fine. When the pop3 connector runs and there is no mail to collect, no errors are generated. If there are messages, the following is sent to the log:
    Log opening: 17:50:17 : 11/15/09

    If I open command prompt and telnet localhost on port 25 I get "Could not open connection etc" I have tried turning off firewall / anti-virus etc. I can telnet localhost on port 587 OK. I can telnet external addresses on port 25 OK.


    In desperation I have downloaded a 3rd party connector trial version (which uses port 587) and this works just fine. However, I would like to get the "on-board" connector to work.


    Any ideas? Thanks.
Working...
