1)  Is it possible to use MS Exchange 2000 without having a broadband connection?  We are a small company that uses ISDN to connect to the internet and are unable to go broadband because our area is not covered by this service and leased line is to expensive.
2)  Is it possible to pick up email from other pop3 servers using Exchange 2000?  If so how do you do it?

Thanks
Julian

Yes, you'd be surprised how little bandwidth email actually takes up. We are running about 100 users through a 64K ISDN line without any problems at all. Looking at the bandwidth monitors, it runs at only about 50% load normally.

2. Yes, Exchange 2000 includes a connector which allows you to connect to remote POP3 servers. There is also a product called POPCon or POPConPro which connects to POP3 servers. Not sure what the advantages of this product are, but there may be some nice features.
