Can the Exchange POP3 connector be configured to leave mail on the ISP server as well as downloading it to user mailboxes [SBS 2003]

I'm just getting my SBS network setup. I've been through a few teething problems with Exchange and the POP3 Connector, but now, touch wood, everything seems to be working as hoped for. My colleague and I spend half of our time at a remote site away from the domain with the SBS box. We would like to configure the POP3 Connector in Exchange to leave all mail on the ISP's mail server so it can be read from the remote site.
I can't see anything obvious to ensure that this happens and wonder if anyone has any advice? How do we get the POP3 Connector in Exchange to download all mail to our Inboxes but leave the mail on the ISP mail server?

The POP3 connector is very basic and only intended to be used during a migration to an SBS. There are a LOT of limitations which mean it is not meant as a long-term solution.

Your best option would be to use Outlook Web Access on the SBS server to remotely access the Exchange mailboxes on that server. All you need is a static IP address and port 443 forwarding through your firewall to the SBS server. Then you can go to https://static IP address/exchange and remotely access your mailbox on the SBS.

Also, you may want to look at http://www.amset.info/exchange/pop3-smtpswitch.asp for information on how you can switch to direct SMTP mail delivery straight through to the SBS.
