restart the machine may its still cached in your profile, but i'm sure it could be able to send/receive with the old password

Unfortunately your explanation is a bit vague, so I'm going to cover both possibilities:

When you say you are connecting via pop3, are you connecting to the SBS/Exchange server, or to a third party? For SBS users, Outlook should be configured to use the Exchange protocol, not POP3, thus your AD password change should take effect immediately. If you *are* using pop3, you may have some cached credentials and other problems as well...this is *REALLY* not a recommend configuration. Even for outside users, Outlook Anywherre (RPC over HTTP) is a far better and easier solution to maintain...and actually more secure.

If you are using the poip3 connector that comes with SBS then the password in AD has *no* relation to the password your mailhost assigns to the pop3 account from which mail is pulled. This is one (and certainly not the only) reason why using the pop3 connector long-term is not recommended. It significantly adds complexity and administrative overhead and can lead to password confusion on many levels. If this is the case, you should be making a transition plan to full in-house email and that will resolve your issue (see #1.)
