OK this is not a lotus notes client issue, it is a Domino Server issue.  R5.07.

I have an ISP that will not give SMTP access to download mail from a server, and I cannot change service providers (For contractural and time reasons).

Is there any way - through a domino setting that I have yet to find, or through 3rd party software to plug directly into domino - that I can get POP mail downloading into my mail network?  SMTP mail out works OK, and I could get each user to connect via the notes client to their individual pop mail boxes and then replicate back, but this gives larger administrative overheads, and as there is a fair amount of hotdesking going on in the office I do not want to be running around for the next 6 months sorting out problems (And more importantly I am going on holiday in a couple of weeks and do not want to be phoned by work to sort out problems if I am half way up a mountain side!).

There is a time limit on this - I need to get it done by next Monday AM if at all possible.

Thanks in advance
