You ditch the POP3 connector and use Exchange as it was designed - SMTP delivery. The POP3 connector is not designed for long term use, only to aid the switch. That is one of the reasons why it is crippled in the way that it is.

Otherwise you have to use a third party tool, but those still have the same flaws as the native POP3 connector.

Any reason you haven't moved to SMTP delivery?

No you can't set it lower than 15 in SBS.

I think you shouldn't set the value too low otherwise your server will constantly be retrieving email from mail server which takes up a lot of bandwidth. The way POP3 connector works is that it opens a connection for the first user, download his emails and close the connection; open a connection for the second user........and so on; so if you set it to every minute your server will get busy and the consequence is that it may not have chance to retrieve email for, say the 7th user because it needs to get the email for the first user again.

Theres no reason really - its just the domain has all the email accounts setup and were previously using pop3 and we upgraded the server.

also we host the domain and we have setup anti-spam software that works with the pop account on the domain.

Thanks anyway guys
