How can I config Exchange Server 2003 to leave a copy on my third e-mail server?

Hello!

I have a third hostting provider for my web page and e-mail.

Recently we install SBS 2003 and Exchange Server at the office on Dell PowerEdge 1600SC server, we setup the Exchange Server to check the e-mail every 15 min., because we need get our e-mails as soon as posible.

Our ISP provider assign us a dynamic IP address, then we use dyndns service on the router to access the server remotly.

Now a day the principal's managers were assign with a new celular mobile phone "blueberry". I setup their's mobiles to check the e-mail account on there mobiles, but they do not receive some e-mails because de Exchange Sever check the e-mail every 15min. and delete from the hostting service provider.

I want to know how can I setup the Exchange Server 2003 to leave a copy of the e-mails on the third hostting provider for 72hrs.

Thanks in advance,

Hi luis_zuniga,

You can't have Exchange do that.  The POP-3 connector doesn't have that option.  Do you mean that you have a Blackberry?  It's really too bad that you didn't investigate this a bit further before getting that phone because a Windows Mobile phone would synch automatically with your Exchange Server.

For a Blackberry, you have to run the redirector on your desktop and you can't turn off your desktop to make it work.  Otherwise you need the Blackberry Enterprise Server which is about $2000!!

Jeff, couldn't you just setup POP3 on the Exchange server and POP off the Exchange box as well as the 3rd party e-mail? (I've done this with some strange success (though not with SBS).  Meaning when I've set it up, it seems to work for a day and stops for some reason.

I wouldn't.  But that depends on the available resources of the server.  POP3 service is pretty meaty...

Actually what you COULD do is to automatically forward all messages to a GMail account and then POP off of that... which is a much bettter way to handle this.

The forwarding is configured in the User Properties > Exchange General > Delivery Options.

A rule can be set up in the GMail account to delete any message after three days, but it's probably not even necessary.
