Exchange 2010, Outlook 2007, POP3, recurring password prompt
Posted on 2011-02-23
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?
