Hi,

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[email@domain.com]>. 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.

Thanks

Mark

I would suggest you try some alternative to built in POP3 connector. It really is pain to manage. We had countless issues with it.

Hi there,

as far as I rememberd, the POP3-connector for Exchange 2003 is pretty simple and doesn't allow for much configuring.
You'd be looking at buying a 3rd-party software that allows you to configure much more settings.

for instance:

But there are others out there as well!

Hi,

The problem was that MS Exchange was configured to send unresolved email back out to the Service Provider and the Catch All account at the service provider was downloading the email again causing a loop in the process..

We resolved the problem ourselves.

Thanks for the input.

Mark.
