Dear, i've installed Microsoft Exchange on the windows 2000 server.
i have a pop account from my isp which catch all of the emails sent to my domain.
now, i need to download the messages that arrives and ditribute it on my network depending on the mail alias. i guess that i need to use what's called "Connectors" in exchange but i don't know how to use it and distribute the mail messages.
any help is highly appreciated
thank you

You need the Exchange connector for POP3 mailboxes.  Read the following:

Let me know if you have any question or problems. I've used this connector and it works great.

Actually, the better thing to do would be to contact your ISP and create an MX record for your domain name to forward all email to your exchange server (assuming you have a static external IP for your Exchange server). This is much better than using POP3

actually i don't have a static ip address. i've just asked the ISP to forward any incoming destinated to my domain, to a single pop account.
thus, all users will have an email alias. the exchange server will download these emails and distribute it.
Quetzal, am working on the document u sent, it seems to be very usefull.
