Pop3 connector is a temp solution.. SMTP is the only want to go. IMO

Simon:

I had read that and it doesn't seem to help in my particular situation.  Can someone point me to the Exchange detailed log so I can post more specific error information for this problem?  Thanks.

RESOLVED:  A friend of mine aided me in fixing the problem by directing me to the following blog:

http://duitwithsbs.wordpress.com/2008/08/29/how-to-troubleshoot-the-pop3-connector-in-windows-small-business-server-2003/

I found the email ID located in the Failed Mail folder by using Windows Search.  After deleting all of the failed mail and then running the POP3 Connector again the problem was resolved.  Although, it was interesting to see that even though it was already in the failed mail it was trying to still send it?  You would think once it is failed.. it's done but I guess not.

In either case my problem has been resolved outside of Experts Exchange and I posted it here for everyone's benefit.
