Can anyone make any recommendations? I am currently using Pop2Exchange and it pretty much blows. Craps out at least once a week.

There is no such thing as a good pop3 connector, they are all junk by design.
No pop3 connector is designed as a primary mail delivery application, irrespective of what anyone tries to sell you.
Switch to SMTP delivery, and watch your problems melt away :)
If you absolutely MUST try something else, Mapilabs and GFI both have pop3 connectors, that are better than horrible

This post is going to cover the process involved in specifying a port other than the default (port 25) for the Send Connector in Exchange 2007 and 2010
Why would you want to?
Perhaps you have a SPAM or Virus appliance that requires you to send it mail on a different port number. Or your ISP requires that you use a different port when forwarding email to their smarthost. There are a number of different reasons why you would want to do this, most of which are designed to combat the ever growing SPAM problems.
In previous versions of Exchange, this change was f…

Please consider using Microsoft Best Practice Analysers as one of the first steps of troubleshooting before attempting anything else.
Why Best Practice Analysers?
It gives you a wealth of information along with possible misconfigurations in your system. Rather than use the Best Practice Analyser tool to adhere to some "best practice", you can use it to document your present server configuration.
You do not have to solve every error / warning, it's possible that your server has been deliberately configured against "best-practice".
But if you are fa…

It looks like there is an obscure problem with exchange server 2003 with service pack 2 sending to a server that is using greylisting.
Greylisting is a technique that can be implemented on a mail server to reduce spam. The concept is that the mail server is set to temporarily reject the initial connection attempt and to tell the sender to resend the email. This second connection attempt is then accepted. The idea is that spammers will not send this follow up email, thus reducing spam. The sending user would receive a rejection notice that states: “You do not have permission to send …

Scenario 1 (Online Backup)
Online Backup was performed on Monday Night 10:00 PM, but Exchange server crashed the next day @ 4:00 PM. Now at the time of restoration, beside restoring the last online backup, we must replay those log files which were created since last backup.

Answer: What about dropping the smart host? As long as you have all the right PTR and SPF records in there, you shouldn't need to use your ISP as a smart host.
