I have a sbs2003 network. currently i have 8 users with a pop3 account in outlook and an exchange mailbox (2 accounts setup in outlook, pop3 and exchange). how does the pop3 connector in sbs exchange work? can i delete the pop3 account in their outlook profile and just configure the pop3 connector? will this allow them to send outside email as well? i should mention that the internal exchange mail is a .local account becuase their mail is hosted externally.

so my question is, how should i setup the pop3 connector so i dont have to configure pop3 accounts in outlook for each user. it makes a hassle when users log into different desktops.

thats what i thought on the pop3 connector in terms of incoming mail. wasnt sure of the outgoing part.

they dont have a very reliable internet connection, which is why i dont want exchange to host their mail. rather go with a 3rd party.

do i just configure a smarthost on the exchange server to forward all mail to our ISP for routing? can i make it so it forwards everything except .local mail?
