Pop3 not working after Small business 2003 Exchange transfer

Patricck asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am in the middle of a small business server 2003 migration. I am using this step by step for it:
I have almost everything running on the new server. I can send mails too. My mailboxes are stored on the destination server, but if i turn off the pop3 on the source server, i am not able to receive mails.
All processes are running on the destination server. In the logs i have this:
1) The POP3 server responded to the Microsoft Connector POP3 Mailboxes connection with: <+OK Hello there>
2) Access was denied to the mailbox .... ... logging on as ........ Verify the password for the mailbox account and try again Event ID:1029
3) An error occurred during the POP3 transaction to server. The error is 0 (The operation completed succesfully)

Our exteranal mail server is running linux.
If i try to connect from the source server... there are a lot of logs.. about authentication.. etc
but from the destination server just that connected.. disconnected.

Could you please help me to fix this?

best regards
