SBS POP3 Connector Manager

Hello All

I have yet to set up email on our SBS server, my question is regarding the POP3 Connector function within SBS 2003.

Our registered domain name with Go Daddy only allows five POP mailboxes, does this mean the POP3 Connector could only be used for those five accounts?

regards
Bryn

The pop3 connector can download mail from any mail server that supports pop3. You can setup any amount of entries inside the connector to download mail from lots of sources.

suggestion for you.....

I've used GoDaddy email along with about every other iteration of POP email.  what i would do is go here:

http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/business/messaging.html


do some reading.  then....do some more reading.

set up your company with Google Apps/Gmail and associate your domain name with it.

it has proven to be much more reliable (for me anyway) than the GoDaddy stuff, email shows NO indication of using Gmail/Google as a backbone.  Storage is much bigger etc etc etc.

another thing i like about piggybacking on the Google Apps infrastructure is the instructionals are just like you mention "for dummies" type things.

to tell you the truth, i use it as a backup email server.  that's not the intent, but it works great.  whenever our server is down, re-setting etc, email just rolls to the gmail based server, then the pop3 connector retrieves all of it when our server comes back up.  all you have to do is set up a subordinate MX record to point to the google servers. and best of all....it's F-R-E-E.

like you mention, ideal for the small business. we have fewer than 20 people though, but this IS the Small Business Server thread!

Hey all, thanks for the info

I've managed to setup the company email with Exchange, So i now have no need for the POP3 connector manager. Interesting reading though!

wow! i was wondering why you hadn't done that in the first place.  GOOD call!  that's going to be MUCH better than POP!

oh and pistolslapper, not many people ARE aware of that email service from Google. I kinda had to dig to find it initially.
