Exchange 2003

I have been asked if its possible to receive an email using the protocol POP3 with Exchange 2003 and use SMPT to send an email.

Of course it is, just enable, POP3 and SMTP.

Yes it is you need to ensure that the Microsoft Exchange POP3 service is set to automatic and started.

Then make sure the Default POP3 Virtual Server is started then make sure Port 110 is forwarded to your exchange server from your router/firewall.

When you setup the SMTP connection make sure you set authentication in the form of DOMAIN\username and also make sure that the exchange alias is the same as what appears under the account tab in Active Directory Users and Computers.

SMTP us already enabled in Exchange of all versions, if it wasn't you wouldn't be able to send or receive any emails.

The important part is the authentication.
