We are having endless problems with downloading of pop3 accounts, through a windows 2003 sbs server
Posted on 2009-05-14
I have several workstations that connect to the internet through a DSL Router which is connected to a Windows Small Business Server 2003, their e-mail accounts are pop3 accounts which are hosted by another external service provider, which they access directly from their workstations, The e-mail is NOT downloaded by the internal server, their workstation connects to the external pop3 account directly and downloads to the workstation. But we are having problems with the workstations trying to connect to the pop3 server, its intermittant and the downloads happen in patches, as if the network is too busy to download e-mails at certain times. Any suggestions, does SBS2003 limit the throughput of Data to the workstations, They are a print company and they often have large e-mails waiting to be downloaded. ISP can offer no assistance...
