Popcon software

Is anyone familiar with the Popcon software? I have installed it on my server so that I can use it with MS Exchange in order to receive/send e-mail as I do not have a static IP address. The problem I have is when I trigger mail retrieval, I receive the message "Mail transfer to exchange failed: Connection to host denied." I have tried looking at some of the configurations, but cannot resolve this problem.

First make sure you can pick up mail on that server with y normal client like outlook or outlook express. If you can, compare the popcon configuration to that of your mail client, they should be similar. If you can't pick up mail even with your mail client either you've got some setting wrong, or you have a firewall blocking ports 110 and / or 25.

I can send/receive on my LAN but because I do not have a static IP address I cannot test if I can pick up mail on my server with Outlook..

You don't need a static IP address to test picking up mail on your server. Just setup your email client on the server like you would on a workstation wit a normal internet mail account (best to use yours with your ISP or other mail provider).
