SBS2003 & POP3 connector - mail 'disappearing'
Posted on 2004-11-17
I'm in the process of setting up our newtwork to access the internet & e-mail. Server is running SBS2003 with exchange (no ISA server)
I've used the POP3 connector to download the e-mail into one user's account, who can then forward e-mail internally as required. But I've got two problems:
1 - Mail is being downloaded from the ISP (I can see test mails using Webmail that disappear after a while, so I assume the server is downloading them). But it does not arrive in my Exchange mailbox, and doesn't appear to be in any of the message queues?
2 - Outgoing is not being sent, but is being held in the queue.
I'm beginning to think that using SMTP would be easier, although my ISP will not store e-mails if the server goes down...
