POP Connector - Use of external domain

In SBS 2003 I need to add a user with an email adress from an external domain.

I have added the user and changed his primary email adress to the external one. Sending emails from his account works fine, but when the POP Connector retrieves emails they just disappear. Event viewer reports successful retrieval, but emails never appear in his inbox.

Other users on the external domain will still be hosted from their ISP, so it is important that he still can send out emails to other users in the domain.

Is there any way to get this working correctly?

2. Expand Recipients, and then click Recipient Policies.
3. In the right pane, right-click the Default Policy, and then click Properties.
4. Click the E-Mail Addresses (Policy) tab.
5. Verify that the local domain name appears in the SMTP address and that you do not have an SMTP address configured for an external domain, such as an ISP’s domain name.
6. Click New, click SMTP Address, and then click OK.
7. Type the POP3 e-mail address, such as @MyISP.com
8. Click to clear This Exchange Organization is responsible for all mail delivery to this address.
