Accessing pop mail from local network

Hi,
I have a member of staff that accesses his mail from our SBS server via pop3 from his laptop. When he comes into the office his outlook cannot connect to the server.

I have set up a forward lookup DNS record and when he is in the office, pinging mail.ourdomain.com from his laptop does resolve to the exchange server 192.168.1.x

I cannot understand why exchange will not allow the connection when the request comes from the local network. Any help would be great!

Thanks, Jerry.

Hi,

How many network interfaces are there on your SBS. Maybe exchange/pop3 is bound to your external IP only.

HI Jerry,

Start->Programs->Microsoft Exchange-> System Manager ->Servers -> Protocols -> POP3 ->Default POP3.. Right Click - Properties - What IP is on it - normally keep it all unassigned for both interface access.
