Is the message on the clients computer or the server?

If the message is on the clients side it this means you have configured the pop account on the clients side. You should have configured the pop account on the server.

On the client side you should only have the exchange account in the Mail Accounts Tab.
If there a pop account listed it’s probably where your clients error message is coming from.

Has your service provider changed the pop account settings? Or have you deleted users and left the pop account there on the Exchange server. You can usually find out which account is giving you the error message in the event log.

Also you must use SMTP to send out your mail from the server. Unless your isp allows relaying your smtp setting should be the ISP's one and if your emails are hosted by another service provider your pop account will point to the email service provider.

Hi There... there is no other pop account in the mail accounts(confirmed) the provider has not changed any pop account settings...(the pop accounts work fine sending and receiving on the webmail) there are two accounts giving problems..(taken from the event log on the server)
there is a error id 1019 on the event log first, then comes error id 1023,1036 and 1029 for each of the two users.. hope this clarify's things a bit more...

If the web mail the accounts work, You may want to delete the pop account on the server and re create it for those 2 users.

I have had this error recently and found the above information unhelpful but after reviewing various posts, I noticed that there was an error in the email address which meant that when I was login onto the ISP the user id/password will not match.  Having corrected the mistake the error goes away.  
So I suggest that you verify your username and password settings in exchange.
