POP not working

I have installed the exchange server for the first time. Everything seems to be working fine except pop access.

I can configure exchange account in outlook and send and receive mails. I can even open http://server01/exchange link, which opens outlook web access.

The problem is that I can't access the account through the POP interface. Every time I try and test the pop account, I get
Establishing network connection - Completed
Find outgoing mail server (SMTP) - completed
Find incoming mail server (POP3) - Completed
Log onto incoming mail server (POP3) - Failed
Send test e-mail message - Failed.

I don't know much about exchange server. I opened system manager and tried to find something, but couldn't.
