Retaining mail while using the POP3 connector

One of my clients using SBS 2003 wants to use the POP3 connector to pull mail down to his Exchange Server.  Can the POP3 connector be set to leave mail on the provider server or does it already do that?  Reason being is that they have Blackberrys and are syncing to the 3rd party service.  Can Blackberrys sync directly to Exchange?

Thanks!

Hi,

In outlook -

tools -> email accounts -> Your Account

Click on "more settings" - Last tab - leave a copy on the server has to be chosen.

It's not possible to tell the POP3 connector to leave the mail on the server.
Look into Blackberry Professional Software for the SBS server.

dineesh - BBMarc is referring to the POP3 Connector in Small Business Server. It connects to a POP3 server on a scheduled basis and brings mail into Exchange mailboxes for defined users.

Thanks for your responses.  DanielWillmott - The client only has 10 users on Blackberrys and the Pro software is somewhat cost prohibitive at $849.  If the client syncs to the 3rd party mail provider, are you saying that they will not receive all of their mail, depending on when the server syncs?

That's correct. The POP3 connector will pull all the mail in and leave nothing at the third party server.

This might be an alternative though. I have not used this myself but perhaps a third party product like this will help: http://www.mapilab.com/exchange/pop3_connector/
It has an option for leaving the mail on the POP3 server.
