Pop3 Access Exchange 2003

Hi all,
Ive recently tried to connect my customers blackberry to his exchange 2003 server using pop3.
Unfortunatly the connection is always refused so i tried a normal mail client (outlook) to try connect and still it does not work.

I have opened TCP ports 110 and they point to the correct server.
In exchange system manager under http >>exchange virtual server i have the following listed.

Exadmin
Exchange
Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync
OMA
Public

Reading other articles it seems i am missing a vital folder from the list above?
Also the pop3 protocol is enabled.

Any help appreciated.

You will need to create a mail-enabled contact in Exchange 2003 with teh SMTP address of the BB email, and then in the Exchange General tab under teh user account, forward mail to the BB email address you set in the contacts.  We have a number of BB users here and this works very well if you do not have a BES in place.

Any reason you aren't using a BES? Professional edition is free for the first device. A Blackberry without a BES is just above a toy, as you only get about 30% of the functionality.

Mestha,
If you are addressing me, the company won't let me put one in.  I've asked so I have to do it the hard way.  I've also suggsted Professional Edition to my company and that may be an option for Dearg too.

As I described above, I use mail enabled contacts in Exchange to support my 6 Blackberry users because of limitations I have no control over.  Certainly Mestha's solution is preferable but either will work equally.

I recommend a split of points at this time.
