Exchange Server & POP3 Account
Posted on 2006-07-05
i have here this senario in my head office,
I have here my exchange server 2003 Std Edition.
All of My users are configured to use the exchange server as there Default Mail Server System.
The Exchange Server is Able to send / Receive to External Domains without any Problems at all.
and the Exchange server is also able to communicate internally without any Problems.
But, i have another situation.
A Group of users in my company have another POP3 Account for there E-mails Hosted Outside in USA .
so, they asked me they want to recive there E-mails on the POP3 Account, while they are configured on the Exchange server account without logoff or change or create another user Profile for the POP3 Account.
so they have to E-mails as following :-
on Exchange server -------- User1@ABC.COM
on POP 3 Account -----------User2@Mydomain.com
so, what i did is, on the Exchange Server 2003 Account, under MSOUTLOOK2003, i create another Email Account but with POP3 account, and i made the Exchange Account is the Default.
So, each user of this Group have One OUTLOOK Profile, with 2 E-mail Account assosiated with it as following:-
1- Default Account ----will be for Exchange Server Account.
2- POP3 Account------- will be the Next E-mail.
Now, the User when he is trying to send an E-mail , the Email is sent by using the default account which is the exchange server .
and when any one send to the POP3 account, the user able to receive without any Problem while he is work on the exchange Profile.
Now the Problem is as following :-
when an Exchange user send email to another exchange recipient, the receipent reply using the exchange account without any Problem.
when any one from OUTSIDE send an E-mail to POP3 account, and the user try to reply on him, we found that , the e-mail will be sent by using the POP3 account, and this is what i do not want.
i want to send always by using the exchange account, so how can i make it .
i click on Tools, Options, Mail Setup, send/receive, and i disable the POP3 from sending any E-mails.
but the Problem is still.
please help me how can i solve it .
