SBS2003 Exchange - How do i re-route incoming mail to a specific mailbox using the pop 3 collector
Posted on 2005-03-31
I'm having an issue trying to configure exchange 2003 running under SBS 2003.
In Exchange 5.5 i used to collect mail using a pop collecter (igetmail) directly from the ISP and then be
able to distribute that mail directly to exchange mailboxes, even though the mail was from different email
domains. All i had to do was add the domain i wanted to re-route in the routing tab under the IMC and then
add another SMTP address in the users email addresses tab under their mailbox properties. Users could then
pick up mail from multiple ISPs. I'm having difficulty achieving this under Exchange 2003 running under SBS 2003.
I have tried adding the new domain (@domain.com) to the recipients policy under exchange system manager and
also tried adding the individual smtp user address directly to the user accounts under AD.
I then try sending a test message to the new address and it generates a 1702 pop connector error saying that
there is no delivery information for this message ID so it routes it to the administrator mailbox......with no more
info to see, even from the headers. So the message arrives at my server, it just can't route it to the users mailbox?
Other things to note are: the server is nearing its maximum licence and i have very frequent warnings concerning this. When
i enable the new SMTP entry in the default recipient policy i start to get stop errors (licence events) for my anti-virus program.
Do i need more licences in order to add new smtp addresses?
hope that made sense
