    Yes. Is there any reason why you need to enable POP3?

        i still don't know what you want..

        why won't you using just outlook for office usage, and OWA for remote?
        also when using pop3, the mail will be downloaded to the client. If a user removes his messages, it will be removed locally and you have no "power" to restore it. It will not be backed up.

        When using Outlook on imap based, the mail kept stored on the mailserver. SO if a user removes his mail, you're still be able to restore it (if you setup you're backup correctly)

        so please tell me what you want to do, what you want to know in detail, before i go further


        about the security please see:

        POP3 isn't secure. Usernames and passwords are send in plain text over the internet. If you want to secure it, you should use POP3 over SSL

            S, you can install the Mail Services for Windows Server 2003, that'll allow you to creater as many mailboxes as you want without the need to install Exchange, and let the users access their mailboxes via Outlook or Outlook Express, and a POP3 account.
            Cheers,

              for internal usage? then you can use the offer what daniel says, although from a security view, it's still not recommended. everyone with a sniffer or something can read the user credentials for the pop boxes.

              have a look at this article:
