SBS 2003 R2, Exchange SP2.
Have a client that was using SMTP for email but because of an ISP line issue lost internet access.
A telco Co (IPrimus) just rerouted the phone line to one of their new routers and the clients ISP was disconnected. So I changed MX to route all their emails to my own SMTP server (that worked fine) and decided to use a Global POP3 Account to download all those emails to the clients server. Logs from both ends tell me emails have been downloaded and have arrived at their destination. Logging set to Max. However nothing gets to the end users mailboxes. The admin mailbox set up to receive non deliverable emails is working fine. (If I send an email to a non user in that domain the email gets delivered to the admin mail box.)
I can search for the missing emails and find them but not open them or find out where they are.
Ended up setting up individual email accounts using POP on the outlook clients as an extra account and that works fine. I have however lost 3 days of mail that got downloaded but can't be found??
This is not a major issue because the ISP will have resolved their mistake in the next few days but I'd like to know if anyone knows how to get a Global Account to distribute email? What am I doing wrong.
