What is the best way for POP3 users to download emails in places with erratic internet connection?
Posted on 2011-04-26
My Head office hosts our live email server running Exchange 2007. We have branch offices worldwide, where the users have their Outlook configured for POP3 and SMTP. Some of these locations having 5 or 6 users only face an erratic internet connection. This connection is the best that we can get now. This results is server time outs when users press send receive on their Outlook. Sometimes if there are attachements with more than 1 MB, it becomes difficult. What is the cheapest way where I can install another PC or server at this site which downloads the messages intended for the users at this site, so that when they press send receive, the messages come form this machine rather than the internet.
