Please clarify... You have 2 email accounts?  One on your office exchange server and one with another company/provider???

I would recommend using an internet service such as Hotmail.  You can set up and account there and then receive your "POP" email from your "supplier's" server.  This will allow you to view all your email from up to 4 POP servers all in one location.

Is your ISP Exchange aware?  Is this a dial-up account?  Do you proxy to get to the internet?

AS far as i know, EXC 5.5 is not capable of retrieving mails from an pop3 account like most ISP´s offer to curstomers.
I´ve tried it and the only thing which works is to send mail to the ISP usingg the dial-up connection. But if you want to retrieve mails you have to talk to your service provider to change your email account, so your mails will be queued at the ISP until you will send an ETRN command with the EXC 5.5 Internet mail service. Another way could be to set up an extra machine which pick up all mails from your ISP account and forward them to the EXC server. I´m still in the phase of testing this, so I´m also interested in any suggestion.
