Server System
Windows SBS 2003 R2 SP2 with Exchange

Desktops
Windows 7 Pro 32 bit
Outlook 2010 32 bit

Clients email is hosted pop3 e-mail that we need to download into exchange server so that calendars can be shared among 5 company employees.. Ports 995 & 465 with ssl are required to access their pop email. I have setup the pop3 coneector on the exchange server but cannot get mail downloaded or sent. I haven't been able to locate where to specify the smtp port or to specify ssl for the pop server.

History- Apparently this worked until they removed their Windows XP boxes with Outlook 2003 and has not worked since. They have setup a seperate pop email acount and can send & receive mail just not through Exchange.

The pop3 connector built into SBS 2003 oes not support custom ports or SSL. It was designed as a migration tool and is not intended for long-term use, thus its feature set us limited. If you plan on using exchange, you should transition to a full SMTP end-to-end solution.

They are stock brokers, the company they work through requires hosting the email as that company maintains copies of all emails. Any suggestions for a solution.
