Make sure the pop3 services is running on the server. Also check the properties for the access controls of the pop3 service (ESM->servers->yourserver->protocols->pop3).

What is your goal just remote email access through outlook?  If so there are other options in additon to pop such as RPC over http, vpn, OWA, etc.

my exchange server is a members server, i store some files on it and uses remote access to monitor it.  when i login i get an generic host error and the computer browser shuts down it does not effect the funtionality of exchange but the brower shut down is a  puzzle to me.

Have you tried using OWA instead of POP?  Does that work for you?

the goel is to have all external users use pop smtp. i want them to use outlook 2003 grab their email then go on their way and not use space on the server.
