[OFF TOPIC] How to setup MS Exchange connection to ISP POP3 ac

We also tried to do this, but it doesn't work. If you have an always
connected service, with an extra IP address, use Exchange as your
email service and have your mx records pointed to your server (this
is done by your ISP). Or, .... we originally set-up each workstation
to retrieve the emails through the service set-up on the individual
Outlook Programs. If you do that, then each workstation would have to
have internet access available. The reason we changed was because we
wanted to limit internet access for some workstations (a router can
also do this).
Hope it helps.

Many people ask if they can connect Exchange Server to their POP3
mailboxes at their ISP.

The answer is no, not without third party software. This is not a
rational action because mail that has been delivered to a POP mailbox
no longer has an SMTP delivery envelope, and thus cannot be reliably
resorted and delivered to the appropriate mailboxes.

The Exchange Server support for POP3 is for the client only. POP3 is
a client protocol for connecting clients to mailboxes, not a server
to server mail transfer protocol, that is what SMTP is for.

Have you checked with your ISP whether they can forward mail via SMTP
triggered by ETRN? If they don't provide such support the only way
is to use a third party tool or find an ISP that does support SMTP
forwarding.

There are several third party tools for downloading from a POP3
Mailbox in Exchange Server. None of them are 100% reliable but they
will work if there is no other alternative. I have used the one from
jak.com with very little complications. Below are links to two
vendors that supply POP3 Connectors for Exchange Server.

Help Please.

I am having a problem finding any examples or how-to information
regarding the use of a POP3 account for internet email and setting it
to check email server regularly. My SBS server allows me to use a
POP3 connector to accomplish this with ease but MS doesn't allow you
(only God knows why??)use this connector on the full version 5.5.
Can anyone provide me with information on how-to do this?

We have a LAN modem that connects the network to the internet and one
email account that contains everyones email sent from our website.
