Use of global mailbox in Exchange Server 2003

I am trying to use a global mailbox in the POP3 section of Exchange Server 2003.  My OS is Server 2003 SBS.  My mail host has set up a global catchall account of info@mydomain.com.  

I have set up an entry in my POP3 Connector Manager Properties to check the info@mydomain.com account.  The entry is a global mailbox.  There are 6 users setup on the server and each of them are setup with an SMTP address of username@mydomain.com.  

Mail is getting picked up from the info@mydomain.com post office but the messages never get delivered to the recipient.  

Also, if I set up the mydomain.com e-mail address as the default, then messages being sent out get returned as first being delayed, and then not delivered.

What things do I need to set in order for this to work?

I would drop the whole idea personally.
Catch all addresses are nothing but a magnet for spam and viruses.

Any reason you aren't using SMTP delivery as Exchange was designed? The POP3 connector is designed to help you move to SMTP delivery and has a number of flaws, particularly its handling of BCC messages.

Your best option would be to switch to SMTP delivery and use Exchange as it was designed - and not try and use a catch all.
