Download mail to publicly available folders in SBS 2003 Exchange
Posted on 2006-05-09
I have just moved our business (after many years on a peer to peer system) to SBS 2003. I'm very pleased that all worked fine and the system is up and running, however.....
We have existing POP mailboxes on our ISP. We can download mail to Exchange useing the MS pop connector OK but it only wants to distribute mail to specific Exchange mailboxes. This would be fine except that we most often have situations where one of several people could answer the mail (not necessarily the addressed recipient). Ideally we would like to be able to have the mail routed to a public folder where it can be distributed by humans rather than Exchange rules.
On our old hack of the MS postoffice system life was easy, we just dragged mail to the appropriate folder depending who was available on the day to answer queries.
Is this possible or something similar?
(BTW we will be going to SMTP in both directions as soon as our ISP does the appropriate MX changes, so maybe that's an option)
many thanks Experts
