I've installed a SBS 2008 standard and am more use the SBS 2003. How can I run the wizard to setup the Exchange and use the pop3 connector instead of using the part that wants to setup a domain name outside and change the MX record to route email to my SBS 2008 server. I still want my domain hosted outside along with my email. I need a response soon as I'm working on this in the morning.

Thank you experts in advance.

There is no pop3 connector in exchange 07 as far as I know, you will need a 3rd party tool to do this.

Yes there is a POP3 connector according to this page.

What I wanted to do was setup the exchange server to be able to send emails like normal then and receive emails through the pop3 connector. The link above explains but in order to get to it I need to go through the internet setup wizard where it want information to change mx records to route email to the local server. I still want the email hosted offsite for now. And to access the Outlook Web Access I'll just have the users logon through the VPN function. I haven't been through the internet wizard and was wondering if it had options for this senario.

Good spotting, I ran the wizard and now have the connector working, during the wizard choose to manage DNS yourself manually, type the email domain name, and finish. Then you can configure pop connectors. Thanks for prompting me :)
