Hi

Does Exchange 2003 have a built in POP3 connector to collect mail from a POP3 account and route it to users?

I know Exchange 2000 does not and you need a third party connector for that like MapiLab's Native POP3 Connector.

Yep, Exchange 2003 comes with a free copy of POP3.

Here's what Ms have to say about it:

Looks like a very complex way of collecting POP3 mail from outside an organisation.

You have to wade thorugh some of the marketing "comments". As a POP3 server it works fine and is fairly standard as POP3 go.

Install it and give it a go.

No, Exchange 2003 does not have a POP3 connector - that is, it has no function that will download waiting mail from an external POP3 server. The Small Business Edition of Windows 2003 Server does have a connector, which sadly is not available in the regular editions.

You can get a listing of POP3 connectors from http://www.slipstick.com/exs/popconnect.htm.

Exchange 2003 DOES have a POP3 service, meaning you can connect to it from a POP3 client like Outlook Express to get your mail, as What90 states. But that's not a POP3 connector.
