How does one configure Excange 2000 server to mirror a pop-3 server.  

We have our e-mail hosted by an ISP using a POP3/SMTP (non-exchange) servers and they to not relay messages outside of their network and they do not offer web-based e-mail.

My objective is to:
1)  Download e-mail messages from the pop-3 server (for each user) and place them into the users Exchange server mailbox.
2)  Send outbound Exchange messages thorugh the ISPs SMTP server.

Look here for third-party alternatives - http://www.gficomms.com/.  What I have read advises against retrieving from PO3, although we do that ourselves with Exch5.5 SBS and the POP3 Connector.

If the ISP is handling all your mail, then I assume are probably using Exchange for other reasons: Calendar, public folders, etc.

If you are using Outlook 9x or 2K, it may be simpler to simply have the clients POP their mail and send SMTP mail directly to the ISP using the Internet Mail service in Outlook. In other words, don't use the Exchange server for sending or receiving mail. Clients can still store mail they have POPed from the ISP to their Exchange mailbox on the server using the Exchange Server service.

If you are using POP clients such as Outlook Express or Netscape, then there honestly doesn't seem to be a reason to host an Exchange server at all.

pullmail.exe is a free download that collects POP3 and sends it to any SMTP server of your choice. It can run on your Exchange server or on a seperate box. Dozens of other pop3 pullers available but not sure which others work on exchange2000.
