We have 602lan installed as a proxy for ICS and mail serving, the ICS has never worked right, the connections on the workstations sometimes works and then other times no ICS is available.  There are 18 e-mails to be collected from the server, but at the moment we can not get this to work either,  is there a step by step guide to sending and recieving e-mails on multiple domians with windows 2003 server? from the settings on the server down to local workstation settings,  We have set up a mail server account on the server, but we dont know what to do then?

How do you get your emails right now? do you host your own SMTP server or do you get it from your ISP?

Do you get any error messages or does it just time out when you try to connect from the client? We need a little bit more details on the configuration like what clients are you using and if these are all behind a router etc. Can you send/recieve email on the server, and if that's working, what happens when you follow the instructions on users manual (page 17 of the manual in http://download.software602.com/pdf/lns/2004/ls2004_manual.pdf) to setup the clients?

Clients are using Windows XP and Windows 2000 Pro. They do not connect to the server through a router but via a switch.
We have got the server to connect our ISP and establish there are 18 messages. 18 messages received and delivered to 1 local user. When  we follow the instructions on Page 17 and enter the DNS server address into the POP3 server field we get the following error message

the connection to the server has failed, Account; "192.168.11.1", Server;"192.168.11.1", Protocol; POP3, port; 110' secure (SSL); No, Socket Error; 10060, Error Number; 0x800CCC0E

If the machine accepted the connection but does not response in time then 10060 will be raised at the client, can you double check the interface which the POP3 services is bind to? Also, make sure port 110 isn't already used by another program.

look at your services running on your server.
use a network sniffer on the server to see what network traffic is coming in and out.  I suggest using ethereal.exe

Is your DNS server also the mail server? if not then you need to enter the IP of your mail server.
