I know this is the experts site.. but I have a simple, yet problematic issue.

I installed Exchange in my business with the expectation that the server would be able to collect my 4 pop3 accounts. These would then be populated straight into the users mailboxes.

Is there some way to configure exch 2000 to do this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Your problem sounds exactly like the one I am having, so far the only answer I am finding is a 3rd party software solution.  Have you checked with your email hosting service to see if they have any information that could help?  That is my next step.
