I have Exchange Server 2000. The Pop3 connector let me retrieve the mail every 15 minutes. But I want it more frequent. The interval however is 15, so it is zero or 15.

How can I setup Exchange Server to get my mail more frequent, er even real time?

Can't. That's the default, and according to MS, not changeable. Anyone else hear different?

You will likely need to use a third party pop3 connector.  I am using one called popconpro from
christensen-software.com the cost is cheap $40 or $90 for one that has some anti-spam and anti-virus capability.  In this product you can set the retrieval interval to whatever you want.

I've found an article: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/prodtechnol/sbs/evaluate/featfunc/inetmsg.asp

Option 5 in the article describes the situation I want. I have SDSL. But what is IMS. Do they mean the Internet Mail Service, or the Instant Messaging System? And they don't tell how to setup things....

That article is about SBS and the internet mail service in 5.5, very old article.

so you're pulling the mail from your ISP's mail server? Is there a reason you don't want to be the primary mail server at your site?

Until recently we had a dial up connection.
We switched to SDSL a few days ago.
How can I change my setup to be the primary mail server?
I've no experience with such a situation.

Long story :) I was just wondering. Switching to SDSL, did you get a static IP with the account, or is it a dynamic IP?

static IP.

My email domain name is now managed by the ISP. So I have to arrange first that all mail to @mydomain.com is routed to my static ip.
Then I can do the necessary settings in Exchange Server.
Am I right?

yup. Not that hard with static IP. Ask your ISP about it if you're really interested, they'll be able to switch your DNS records when you are ready on the E2K side.
