Is there a way to bring mail in using pop3 but have it come in on port 25 with SMTP?

I am running exchange 2003 but still use an outside company to host our outside email. I have a spam filter that equires the mail to come in on port 25 using smtp in order to scan it. I am looking for away to convert pop3 to smtp as it reaches my network.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi Dsmmh,

You need a POP3 connector. I use EFS from Chimera Computing.
It's free for 1 domain, but won't run as a service unless you pay to register etc. ;-)

Good Luck,

No this can not be done.

However, you can configure your web hosting company to forward all your pop3 e-mails accounts to your exchange e-mail accounts.

Cheers,

I have looked at Popbeamer pop3 connector and it looks like this would work. Has anyone had any experience with this product?

Thanks

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I believe that my answer on it requiring a POP3 connector is a correct answer.

Anyone else fancy commenting?

I can explain why I disagreed if you like,

>>I have a spam filter that equires the mail to come in on port 25 using smtp in order to scan it.

No POP3 Connector will do this - all it does is download on port 110 and drop it in the pickup folder.  That is why IMF and POP3 Connectors are incompatible, and why I did not consider a correct answer.

The solution from nitadmin was also not going to work (although I believe you answer was more on target).

The main reason for the Delete: Refund was that the asker had a follow up question, about your solution, and did not get a response.

If the asker returns and you can pick up where you left off (we all get busy and miss notifications) then it is a different story.  Right now, from a purely black and white perspective, I have two possibly (IMO) incorrect or incomplete answers and an ignored follow up question.

Please don't take offence to what I have written above, the cleanup procedure can get emotional sometimes :)  If you would like to respond and continue this discussion, please either email me directly (email in profile) or post a CS question.

Thanks

I have not had a chance to test the pop 3 connector yet. I am a one person department with a very very very limited budget. Since the two answers I got were so different I wanted test it before I awarded points. Since it may be after the first of the year before I can test this I will split the points. I do appreciate you taking the time to answer. Being a one person shop I really rely on the advice I recieve from you all.

Thanks
