StarOffice is not compatible with Exchange.  This can't be done perfectly but it can be made to happen.  I have tried multiple times and finally got it to receive from the exchange server by putting the ip address in the POP3 field but could never get it to send through the Exchange Server.

Are you saying that you can not access a PoP account on an exchange server using Star Office email? Is pop mail configured on your exchange server?

How would exchange know that you were using a Star Office mail client instead of any other pop mail client.

Stupid question, are you able to send out email using outlook2000 or a similar client?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

But if he is using Exchange as a POP and SMTP server, then I odn't see why it shouldn't work. So you said even using outlook, you cannot send mail from the outside world, right? Try to telnet to port 25 form teh Internet, do you connect?

You probably can through ES.  My problems was using the address book and doing name resolution.  That would be impossible.
In other words, if you are trying to switch a group of Outlook users to SO, it won't work unless they are willing to change their method of emailing.

I was able to send mail to the Exchange Server by putting the IP address in the POP3 field but it wouldn't use the Exchange Server features like name resolution.  I had to type in the actual email address.  If I could type Nancy in the To field in Outlook, I would have to type nancy@translog.org to get it to go through.  It also let me send to internet addresses this way.  This was not acceptable, though.

So you have to have a MAPI client. UNfortunatly, as Slink9 said, SO is not compatible with Exchange.

Sorry slink9, i wrongly click on the comment to accept as the answer.  The credit should go to you.  How should i give you the points which you deserve?

Just to share with you, your comment was not solve my problem directly BUT I "steal" your concept.  I put in the ip address instead of name.  Second, my exchange server is connected to a mail relay server, so i should put in the mail relay server instead of exchange server name. Third, according to SUN, SO mail client can work with any mail server, so the mail server need to do some configuration as well. Thanks
