Can I receive POP3 emails into an Outlook 2003 client that also has Exchange 2007 account

We have a  new user who 'needs' to receive emails from another email address via POP3 into his Outlook which has an Exchange email account on it. Without doing redirects to accounts on Exchange server is this possible?

Adding an account into outlook is one thing, able to receive emails is another.
If you can't download / connect to the email server, it may be some firewall / security issue: can be on the current active network or the server you're trying to connect. Some e-mail servers (like my ISP) refuses the connection from other network except from their own network (which is sucks), but it is possible to have such case.

Just setup a POP3 account in Outlook in the same profile as your Exchange account.  Then, if you want to, create a rule to move messages "to that email address" to a specified folder.  I have had that setup for years.  No need to do anything on Exchange.  Also when that user creates a new email they will have an Accounts drop down where they can choose the POP account of Exchange account so it will send from Exchange or POP.

Sure thing, you can even add Gmail account for that matter.

That doesn't seem to work for pop3 receiving.

How are you setting up the account?  You need to go to the Email Accounts in Outlook, add a new account, and choose POP3.  Put in the settings and test the connection.  As long as the connection works then the download should be fine.

Most pop3 accounts use the fully qualified email address as user name.  Make sure you are using correct user name.

@meb_santoso:  if that is the case you usually have a different port to use and authentication will allow you on different networks.

Many ISPs block port 25 for sending mail - have yet to see incoming (receiving) port 110 blocked but it does raise interesting question - what ports are being used by this person's ISP for pop email?

Also - try sandboxing this email account.

@R4inc:
true, but in my case it was explicitly said by the ISP that in order to be able to connect to the mailbox provided by them and download the email using POP-client, I must (they insist on using the word must) using their connection (their network), otherwise the only thing I can do to reach my ISP mailbox is using the webmail. (One reason too many to immediately switch ISP)

(I don't think this post still relevant with the original question? If so, my apologies)

What is the domain you are connecting to?  Also check the Advanced tab under More Settings to make sure the ports are correct.  Some ISP/hosting will use specific ports.  Also, check that your outgoing Server settings is using authentication.  You can check this under More Settings as well.

I am testing with a Pipex account but there will be others. Am testing with Pipex because I know their setup off by heart...Famous last words!  smtp server smtpauth.dsl.pipex.com does not work but the previous smtp.dsl.pipex.com does.  Confusing but sorted....

Seems to have been a firewall issue as now works albeit very very slowly!
