I purchased an SecNap Security device and it needs integrated to my exchange server. It wants me to open a port on the exchang server. How do I do this. Thank you

What is the SecNap device (model number) and what port is it wanting to open?
Usually the port is opened on the device and forwarded to the server.  Exchange should already have the ports required open and won't need additional tweaks to make it work.

TCP/IP Port 473 is Hybrid-POP - what the heck does it want with that port?

Ah - that's better - Port 143 is IMAP.
