Exchange server as intermediary

Hello all-
We are trying to setup a new exchange server (the only one here) to pick up mail from a POP server and deliver it to the clients via Exchange (Outlook). Any emails sent should go through the Exchange server and be forwarded to an SMTP server.
We are doing this so that we can have a backup copy of the emails and so that everyone can use an interface that looks the same. In addition, we want to use the Web Outlook (I know that's the wrong name; I'm referring to the web-based Exchange email) instead of the cruddy webmail that we get from our ISP.

If you need clarification, just let me know.
Thanks!

What you will find there are a varied number of POP3 mail connectors that can be added to Microsoft Exchange to collect POP3 mail from an ISP.  What you need to do is look at the level of support you need from the software and go with a product you like.

Please note that if you are running Small Business Server, you need not look any further.  The product comes with its own POP3 connector.

We have tested the following products on their list:

= Exchange POP3
= ARX POP3
= GFI Mail Essentials

Of the products we tested, GFI provided the easiest operation.

itcoza-
Thank you very much! I had no idea how to do this; it was assumed that this kind of functionality was built into Exchange (considering it's price tag :). I'll have to look in to this some more -- hopefully one of the free products will work.
I'm assuming that this is the only way to do this, or nobody else knows what I'm talking about. (I wasn't very clear, was I?)
Thanks again,
J.D.
