Warning about POP3 server on MS Windows 2003 Small Business Server

Hello everyone,

I am getting an error ... well really a warning ... that I would like to resolve but, I cannot find any thing on it in my searching.  Specifically, I am getting the following message:
Event ID: 1012
Source: POP3 Connector
There are no POP3 mailboxes defined for downloading. To define POP3 mailboxes, use POP3 Connector Manager.

I have a POP3 connector under connection in the Exchange Manager, but it is not configured. I don't need to have POP3 on this exchange server because I don't allow POP3 service to be used.

any thoughts...

Disable the pop3 downloader service.
Simple Run The ICW (internet connection wizard) From Server Management console and make sure not to enable POP3.

Okay, I have the Server Management Console up.  On the left side, I have the following:
-To Do List
- Information Center
- Internal Web Site
- Fax
- Monitoring
- Internet & Email
- Shares
- Backup
- Licensing
- Users
- Client Computers
- Server Computers
- Printers
- Distribution Groups
- Security Groups
- User Templates
- Advanced Management
I don't see an "Internet Connection Wizard"

Within - Internet & Email, I have a bunch of choices...I could chose "Connect to the Internet" but this sounds like setting up remote access and defining if you have a modem or broadband.

Could you be much more specific or tell me what snap-in I should load into an MMC and do it the old fashion way?



"Connect to the internet is the wizard you need to run"
and No there is no MMC on that This is a script preconfigured by MS I works pretty good  and save you a lot of time.
With SBS you will realize that it is quicker to use the wizards than doing it the old fashion way.

Now while you run the wizard make sure to disable pop3.
