Hi all,

Here is my problem:

I am running Exchange on SBS 2003 using the POP3 connector.

I've noticed that when sending emails between internal users it just goes straight into their exchange mailbox and not to their POP3 box first.

The problem is that one of my users connects directly to the POP3 box and not into exchange but still has an internal account in SBS. How my question is how do I make emails sent to this particular user go to the POP3 box as opposed to directly into his exchange mailbox as he doesnt use exchange.

Thanks,
Comment

In AD, create a mail enabled contact for this user, and set the email address to be is POP3 address.  Then go into his main AD user account, and under exchange general I believe there is a button for delivery options.  In there, set the option to forward all messages, and point it to the mail enabled contact.  Then exchange will route all mail to that contact, which is out on the pop server.
