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.
