You can configure it through the Connect to the Internet wizard, which is linked from the "Internet and Email" section of the Server Manager console.

Don't forget - the POP3 connector is by no means a permanent solution for collecting mail from a remote server. It is only intended as a temporary solution whilst migrating to an SBS, and you should be making preparations to switch to direct email delivery as soon as you are able to.

Where can I find the Server Manager console?  I have seen it stated I can find it on the start menu but I don't see it.

You can find a link to it in the Administrative Tools container, either from the Start Menu or from the Control Panel, Administrative Tools. I believe it is actually linked as "Server Management".

I thought that is where it might be but all I see is this:

Are you sure this server is actually an SBS? That looks more like a Server 2003 Standard's admin tools folder to me.

If it's going to be anywhere, it will be at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Administration\LaunchConsole.exe. If you can't find it there, it would lead me to believe it's either not installed or this isn't an SBS!

And the program files directory you provided does not exist.

It looks like you've got a major problem on your hands, the server appears to be partially set up, but hasn't had all the SBS tools installed correctly.

I would start by putting the SBS CD 1 into the server whilst it is running and run the Small Business Server setup again in upgrade mode. That won't affect any config - but will reinstall possibly corrupted system files.

The version of windows as indicated in the screenshot is not Small Business Server 2003 standard or premium. This would be the reason why you cant install or enable the pop 3 connector found in the full version of SBS, aswell as the server managment console.

Windows Server for Small Business Server (WSfSBS) is an operating-system only product based on SBS 2003 with Service Pack 1. It does not include any other applications, wizards, or integration tools that are found in the full SBS 2003 R2 product. WSfSBS has the same Active Directory limitations as SBS 2003 R2 (must be the root domain controller in the forest, does not support trusts, cannot move the FSMO roles) and has an additional limitation of only 15 SBS CALs. Lastly, there are no supported upgrade paths, either to SBS 2003 R2 or to Windows Server 2003 R2.

Do you have any other Small Business Server media other than the Windows Server for Small Business Server ?

When did you purchase this software and where from?

Regards
Steve

Oops - sorry I overlooked that! Looking at it again, it would appear Server 2003 for SBS has been installed as the OS, and then promoted to DC as if it were a standard server in a standard environment. Of course - it isn't!

Hey Matt

Only reason I know to look out for this version of 2003 is because I overlooked it in a previous question also haha!

Did you install the server or was it pre-installed, or someone else installed it? They definitely have installed the OS, but the actual SBS components haven't been installed.
