PDA can not connect to Exchange 2003 Using  Pop 3

Exchange organization has 4 back-end exchange servers and 1 front-end server.  From the internet clients access front end server via an ISA server.  Using outlook express clients can successfully connect to the front end server using POP3.  When a client fails to connect when using a PDA provided by Sprint Model PPC6700. The error code is 0x274d.  Just want to make clear. Outlook express connects properly, which I infer that the ISA and Exchange server is setup properly to use POP3.  It is just this PDA which returns the error.

I have not been able to find anything about this error on the microsoft support site or by google.

Not sure if this will help, but with some POP clients you will need to enter the username as DOMAIN\USERNAME\MAILBOXALIAS .  Username is the domain account name, and alias is the Mailbox Alias shown in Active Directory Users and Computers.

POP3 Protocol was not enabled on the particular back-end server to which the client conects.  POP3 worked after enabling the protocol.  The problem was masked because the other tests were do a different back-end server which had POP3 enabled.

Thanks for your suggestion, which did resolve a different issue I was having. So unknowningly you helped me with another issue, so you get the points anyway.
