missing mail from pop connector

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

any examples of thrustworthy  pop3 connecters for sbs2003?
Never had to use one before
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.
