I am running Exchange 2003 on SBS. We have been just strictly using exchange. We now need to setup POP3 for an employee who can only get POP on her phone. I have started the Microsoft POP3 Service. Started the POP virtual server. Forwarded 110 + 995 on the router to the server. I have tried every combiniation of login using SPA, SSL ect and still no luck. Is their something else that needs to be configured?

Thanks.

Make sure the pre-2000 username maches the exchange alias.

Also navigate to Administrative Groups > First Adminiatrative Group > Servers > Servername > Protocols > POP3 right click on the virtual server and make sure it is started.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Are you sure you cannot use IMAP instead of POP? POP will download all emails to the phone and (without options) empty her mailbox on the server. IMAP is a much better suited protocol, leaving the mail original on the server, thus making it accessible from multiple clients. For login, the same applies to IMAP as POP, demazter touched the subject: make sure you use the Exchange alias as the login name if it differs from the login name.

Additional info: You'll find the Exchange account alias in ADUC, tab Exchange General (or maybe Advanced, unsure now). That's the user name you want to use for login. Password is the same as a normal login to the same account.

I had no issues setting up IMAP and POP3 on a test environment. Could it be windows firewall blocking it? When I try to access windows firewall I recieve this error
"Windows firewall cannot run because another program or service is running that might use the network address translation compenent (ipnat.sys)"
We are running RRAS because we use VPN. Could the port be blocked?

And it seems that these articles are for setting up a POP3 connector. I am not trying to connect to another POP3 server. I am just looking for users to be able to access their exchange emails on an IMAP or POP3 phone. Or am I mistaking what a pop3 connector is for? Thanks.

Hi,

If the port is open over the internet for POP then atleast no firewall is blocking it and service is running. Can you let us know what error you do face when setting up POP client?

Did you read my posts?

Can you check: Also navigate to Administrative Groups > First Adminiatrative Group > Servers > Servername > Protocols > POP3 right click on the virtual server and make sure it is started

Please do not confuse the POP3 connector that is available in Small Business Server with the POP3 Service available with all Microsoft  Exchange products.

Demazter-Ok just wanted to make sure for what I am trying to accomplish the POP3 connector isn't needed. I am going to reboot the VPN router later today, as I haven't rebooted since I made the port forwarding changes. Maybe that will fix it. If not I will reread all the post and reset it up and report back. Thanks.


Side note question: In my test environment were I successfully setup POP3. For the test user I am using it when trying to send/receive in outlook 2007 it keeps asking to "Enter Network Password". Now his username password doesn't work I have to use the admin password. Once I put in the admin username and password, it authenticates. Why would I need to use an admin account to set it up in outlook? Thanks.

You need to ensure you are using DOMAIN\Username and that the Username under the pre-2000 username in Active Directory Users and Computers for that user is the same as what is listed as the Alias.
