Have a client who had the pop accounts in his outlook, and worked fine, got exchange mail and pop accounts without a problem, Now he bought an extra notebook and wanted the same mails. Setup the pop3 connector on the SBS2003 like usual. But mails are not found in the mailbox from the account, checkiing the webmail of the account and there gone.
Mailtracker in exchange finds no trace of the mail.
No av mail/spam scanner on the server.
Any Idea's

A notebook, or any system, that is external to the SBS domain should get its mail from the SBS, or any Exchange server, via Outlook Anywhere.  Pop3 is a kludge.  Don't use it.  

The explanation for Outlook Anywhere, with explicit instructions on how to set it up, can be found on your RWW landing page.

it gets its emal from exchange, but the server 'misplaces' the mail it gets from the pop host. Used to work perkectly when the pc got the mail from the pophost

Hi:
If you mean that the pop3 connector for exchange does not bring the mail down from the ISP to your SBS Exchange server, this is one of the issues of the pop3 connector.  It will sometimes work and sometimes not work.  The usual cause is that it does not deal well with mail addressed to more than one recepient., but there are baffeling examples of in not working for reasons that no one has been able to understand.

The solution is one of two alternatives that folks have found.  the best one is to use SMTP mail and have the mail sent directly to your SBS Exchange server.  For that, all you need is a static ip or a dynamic to static service such as dyndns.com, and change you MX records.

The other "fix" a workaround really, if for some reason you cannot use SMTP mail, is to use a third party pop3 connector, many of which have been flawless.

think I realy need the  extarnal popconnector for that account   just found this

The POP3 connector retrieves the user's email (john.doe@domain.com) and routs it to the appropriate local Exchange mailbox (jdoe@domain.local), just like it's supposed to do, but only if jdoe@domain.local is set as the primary reply-to addresses under the Email Addresses tab in the user's properties.
