Need some help with gaining access to pop3 mail accounts on the internet from my company network.  My IE 6.0 works find to get out to the internet but i'm unable to ping any outside addresses with any kind of reply other then host unreachable.
My configuration is this;
 MS NT 2000 server running proxy, Exchange 2000, and DNS with two network cards configured with one private and one public. All users on the private network are unable to ping out but and all tracerte stop at the private network card.   I have number of users that need to access remote pop3 mail accounts everyday now.  Can anyone offer a solution that works?

I am not sure what you are running as a Proxy server, but here are two easy solutions:

1.  If you are using Proxy2.0, here's the link: http://freespace.virgin.net/glynn.etherington/proxy2.htm

2.  If you are using ISA, the simplest thing to do is just to open up port 110 for internal access, so they can go to the ISP without going through Proxy.

3.  If you are using a hardware firewall, just make sure port 110 is opened for Internal access.
