Exchange 2010, Outlook 2007, POP3, recurring password prompt

I have a pretty straight forward Exchange 2010 Enterprise install on Server 08 R2 Enterprise.  My OWA is good, my exchange on the LAN is good, my smart phones are up and working.

I have one odd duck situation that I want to solve by having this one user get his mail via POP3.  I have POP3 enabled, it's open in the firewall, and I can telnet to the server on port 110.  However, my Outlook 2007 cannot setup the account as POP3 as I keep getting a password prompt when I try to test my account settings.

I think I just discovered my problem.  I can telnet in on port 110 but doesn't Outlook 07 use a different, secure port?  I'm now wondering if I need to set up my outlook manually and specify port 110.

Any thoughts on WHY I keep getting my password prompt?

thanks

Have you at the very least installed Exchange 2010 Rollup 3 which fixed the POP3 issue in Exchange 2010?

SP1 has been released and Rollup 2 for SP1 has also been released, so are you up-to-date on patches?

@BCipollone - that article is not relevant to POP3 users - it is for Exchange (cached mode) users.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Well - it helps when you migrate to Exchange 2010 and then get caught by the same problem, speak to Microsoft and realise that they knew about the bug 5 months before the product got released but didn't fix it as it wasn't too big a problem at the time.  Well, to me, it was a massive problem, so the wait for nearly 4 months for the fix was even more painful!

Glad it resolved your issue and thanks for the points.

You know, I just moved an entire corporate client to google mail OFF OF exchange and I have to tell you, I'm loving it.  Microsoft just makes more and more complex and buggy software so that it's gotten to the point that I just dread rolling out anything with their name on it!

Well - I was bleeding edge - just after release and you know what they say - wait for SP1 at least before switching!!

I've never used Google Mail and don't see myself recommending it - but never say never.

a few weeks ago, I was saying that.  now that I have done my first "to google" migration on an exchange 2003 server, I can honestly say, it's complete, easy, powerful and stable.  I won't move everyone there, but I like it and will use it again.
