A user can pick-up his Email from Exchange Server when attached to the LAN.

However when he uses a dail-up connection the following error message is displayed;

Outlook is unable to connect to your Incoming POP3 E-Mail Server.


He has got Windows XP, and the User has been set-up to allow remote dail.


Any ideas?

Thanks Nick

You need to reconfigure his mail support for Exchange Server, and make sure Internet Mail is not selected.

RE:  "Outlook is unable to connect to your Incoming POP3 E-Mail Server."

mail support is configured correct, or else it wouldnt say anything about POP3...

Doesnt sound like a client issue.  Is the user dialing to the internet or into RAS?  You said something about DialIn access being set - that only pertains to RAS connections.

If it is RAS, it could be a DNS issue.

Anyone else have this problem outside the LAN?


Give a bit more info on this.  There are a million possibilities with what you have posted.

The User is dailing in via RAS. I can dail-in via RAS and pick-up the E-Mails without any problems.

When the User dials in the RAS connection is successful, ie. the user is logged-on.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

possibly he has enabled the built in xp firewall functions on his ras connection.

The In-built firewall is not enabled. Further the User cannot access any network drives when he connects via RAS.

Thanks Nick
