Go to Internet Mail settings, and select More Settings, and then the Advanced tab.

There is an option there to specify that the server requires an encrypted connection, which will then configure outlook to use POP3S and SMTPS.

These settings have been done.In fact I configured an Outlook Express on the ISA server Itself and It DOSENT WORK.I stooped Firewall service and email downloaded.So I am sure FireWall Policy is the root Problem.I have created an Access Rule permitting POP3S & SMTPS  protocols but it still dosent work.

Are you sure that your Outlook is connecting on the POP3s ports and the SMTPs ports?

If you are able to connect to them via telnet, but not via Outlook, then it is possible that you are not connecting to the ports you think you are.

Add an access rule for pop3 (110) and smtp (25) to see if that allows you to connect.

It's not normal pop3 (110) & smtp (25) ports, They are SSL ports pop3(995) & smtp(465).

I am aware of that, but you suggest that you can telnet to the host:port, yet can't connect with Outlook. It is possible that the issue is with Outlook configuration, and so this is a method to determine if Outlook is actually going to the ports you think it is. If Outlook is actually connecting to different ports from your firewall rule, then they will be being blocked.

Alternatively, if you have a copy of Ethereal, have a look to see what traffic is actually being sent.
