SBS2003 Pop3 Connection - Force SBS2003 to only pop 1 account at a time.
Posted on 2011-03-01
We have a SBS2003, there are about 15 email accounts. We recently moved to a new service provider. Since we have moved to the new service provider we have the following error in the event viewer:
"An error occurred during a POP3 transaction to server <pop.domain.com[firstname.lastname@example.org]>. The error is 1232 (The network location cannot be reached. For further information about network troubleshooting, see Windows Help."
After investigation it appears thet the service provider only permits 5 concurrent POP3 connection at a time. If there are more they end all the connection.
Our server is running 2 X E5410 Quad Core 2.33Ghz Processors, and it seems like the server is able to POP as many concurrent accounts as it has processors.
I am looking for the registry entry which will force the SBS2003 to POP 1 Account at a time.
Any assistance will be helpful.
Time is of the essence.
