Hi All,
First question to the board!  I'm an end user, still managed to configure my new RAID 5 on my existing flakey  SBS 2003 system - plopped in new drives, set up sbs 2008 running nicely.  my old sbs 2003 email settings just aren't working and i've spent hours trying to figure it out - little to no help from my isp.  i'm getting 202 events, which seems to me i'm just not connecting property.
my old sbs 2003 settings were forward all mail to mail server,  using mail.optonline.net (which i believe is now the smarthost)
my pop 3 mailboxes in 2003 were user@estateattorney.info (my domain), using estateattorney.ipowerweb.com, and port 110 (i believe no ssl)
i've tried every permutation i can think of.  basic authentication.  apop.  spa.  yes ssl.  no ssl.  i expected issues with the install, but never THESE issues.
previously, my recollection was x400 was disabled (or something like that). obviously i'm not using the best email tools, but what i have available.  i did manually change the pop3 service to automatic and made sure it started.  any help would be most gratefully appreciated!!!!!!
