I have the pop connector setup on our sbs 2003 server but i can not send any email out with it.  It keeps telling me that it found the server but there was no response.  I have ports 110 and 25 open and the RPC and OWA work fine.  I can receive email via pop just fine.  I have a security cert installed for OWA and RPC but i don't think that wold affect the pop connection.  

Any ideas??

There is a problem with the smtp authentication. check that the usrname and password you put in the "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" are correct.

I hope you to solve your problem

before you use the exchange server, you used the mail boxes package from certain company. you can make a new email account from these mailboxes  to use it in the smtp authentication in the exchange server.

???  Before the exchange server we where just using our ISP's email.  Now the users are hooking directly to the exchange server.  I am a little lost on your suggestion.  I just want to understand why this does not work.
