    i am asumming that you are trying to download emails to the outlook client only not to the exchange server?

    if so then you need to add a new account to the outlook as a pop3 account and then enter all the details

    if you are wanting to add them to the exchange server for many mailboxes then look at getting a pop3 downloader you can find many through google or

        First of all DNS server could not download emails. Its roll is totally different. Its job is related to name resolution.
        Your internal users Outlook profile is configured with two mail accounts.
        MS Exchange MAPI and an external POP3 mail account. Is it correct?
        Your concern is related to name resolution. Your internal DNS server doesn't resolve the name of the external pop3 server. (to make sure that it is, run nslookup on any of your computer configured to use the internal DNS, nslookup, you should get something

        Server: YOUR DNS SERVER
        Address: IP

        Non-authoritative answer:
        Address: Public IP

        If the IP of is not correct continue the investigation of the forwarder DNS.
        Remove the forwarder and see if the name resolution is correct or not.

          You will need to add an entry to your internal DNS that points to the pop3 server.
