Receive Mail in Exchange 2007

Hi There

i need to know if it is possible to setup exchange 2007 to fetch mail from our hosting company and download it into exchange at certain time intervals without using something like Popcon.
i also need to just draw certain mailboxes and not all available mailboxes.
if this is not the case, what can i use that is free of charge?
i know there is EFS, but for that you must use a Cathall account, and in this case i dont want all mail to be downloaded to Exchange.

Thanks

SBS 2008 has a POP3 downloader

No version of Exchange has a POP3 downloader unless it's part of Small Business Server.  You will have to use a 3rd party tool.

steven,

demazter is correct. POP3 connector is only part of SBS.
If your server is not a SBS Server, I recommend you to use a 3rd party tool called PopCon http://www.christensen-software.com/popcon.htm

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Thanks a lot, but as explained - this is a small business server 2008 and Exchange 2007 is included - all on one disk and all part of one installation.

Sorry steve, I guess we both answered at the same time, so I didn't realise it is SBS. I will let demazter answer this question..

SBS 2008 comes with a POP3 connector.
Please see the official SBS blog on how to configure this: http://blogs.technet.com/sbs/archive/2009/07/01/sbs-2008-introducing-the-pop3-connector.aspx
