SBS 2003 POP Connector

Is there a way to have the SBS 2003 POP connector leave a copy of mail on the Internet Server when it retrieves the users mail? I know like Outlook can do this, but I have not seen were the POP Connector can do that.

Well the POP3 connector is not meant to be a permanent solution.  It's just there to assist in the transition to real SMTP email.  So, if that is your worry, then I'd suggest you configure Exchange as it was designed.

Why would you want to do this?  You can archive your messages on your Exchange Server, and users can have Webmail with Outlook Web Access.

I have had it happen to me twice now (Different clients) were I have setup a client with the MS POP connector and the POP Connector goes out, gets the mail (it is gone from the server) and never shows up in the users box. I CAN NOT FIND IT ANY WERE. If the connector left a copy on the server I could retrieve it. I have set up and used the POP coneector dozens of times and this only happened twice. In both cases I disabled it, went back a week or so later tried it again, and it worked. If I could find that lost mail this might not be a need, but it is.

I do understand that. Both times it happened during the setup of the server and was resolved later (semmingly on its own). Just wondering if there was a way of safely setting this up till it is tested and proven. But I guess there is not, as if there was you would know. I have a HUGE amount of respect for you Jeff, you always have great answers to my questions and in a very timely manner. If you are ever in LA, let me know I will buy you a beer and dinner.

Thanks!  :-)

The basic overview of the POP3 Connector is available here:   http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sbs/2003/support/b66ad442-e146-4c54-8f37-d7f670ea96f9.mspx?mfr=true

I hardly ever use it though, so I probably can't give any additional advice other than to not use it.  :-)
