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

We will do the below configuration:
Configure on the Exchange server a policy named DisableMobileAccess to allow a maximum of zero mobile devices to connect through ActiveSync or through OWA for devices per user, and apply it on the…

most emails are stuck in the "local dellivery" Queue. I have searched a lot on google and performed all changes that I found but emails are still stuck.
