Using POP3 and normal access to an Exchange server 2007 mailbox simultaneously - any issues?
Posted on 2010-09-05
I am about to set up POP3 access to an Exchange server 2007 mailbox (running under SBS 2008) and I wanted to know what issues I might have in the following scenario:
One PC is always turned on and connected to the Exchange 2007 server mailbox with Outlook 2007. Now I want to set up a cell phone to access this same mail box via POP3.
My question is the following: if the PC is always turned on, connected to the mail box and accessing new email messages as they come in, will those new messages not come up on the cell
phone if that user is on the road? Conversely, the first time I set up the cell phone for accessing this mailbox for POP3 access to this mailbox is it going to try and download the
thousands of messages that are in this users mailbox? Or does POP3 access to an Exchange 2007 mailbox only download 'unopened items', etc?
Thanks very much - these are probably very basic questions but an hour of searching the internet didn't get me close to an answer.
