Can't get e-mails from pop server

Hi,

I have dedicated server windows 2003 and decided to configure native SMTP and POP3 services.
SMTP server works fine, I can send emails, but with POP3 I have problems. When I check for e-mails from e-mail program I
always get zero e-mails from my pop server though I send e-mails from another account to my new e-mails.
I only get e-mails to my pop account from my SMTP server postmaster like: e-mail not delivered or etc.

Any suggestion why my mailbox in pop3 service is always empty?

Regards,
Tomas

Forgot to mention, while I send e-mail to my new account I don't get any "e-mail not delivered" messages from others smtp
server, does it mean that e-mails is reached my pop server?

Do you have a router/firewall between your server and the internet? If yes, do you forward SMTP port 25 to your servers internal IP address?

My problem is with pop server, so it is 110 port. Yes I have forwarded 110 port, if I didn't do that I have been able to connect to pop server but now I can, just the number of messages is always 0.

I will try to explain one more time,
The problem is that my POP server does not receive e-mails which are send from other SMTP servers, I get e-mails(smtp notifications e-mails) to my POP server only from my SMTP server .

But mail won't be delivered by POP3 to your server, it will be delivered by SMTP.
Therefore SMTP port 25 needs to be forwarded to your server and you need a DNS MX record pointing to your mail server for your mail domain, so other servers can deliver mail to it. (http://www.petri.co.il/configure_mx_records_for_incoming_smtp_email_traffic.htm)

If you need to PULL mails from your providers POP3 mailbox, you'll need add'l tools. I did a very quick search and found one: http://www.jam-software.com/smartpop2exchange/index.shtml

Hope it helps,

Michael
