problem with SBS 2011 Standard POP3 connector setup

Posted on 2011-05-10

I am setting up a small (5 user) SBS 2011 server. They do not have a static IP. When I run <Standard Console> <Network> <Connectivity> <POP3 Connector> I get the following "You must run the Internet Address Management Wizard before configuring the SBS POP3 Connector..."  I am confused as to what to enter when I run the Wizard. They already have a domain but it points to their web page that is hosted elsewhare. So I don’t know if I should use something like DOMAIN.local or remote.DOMAIN?  Everythings I can find seem to assume a static IP and the ability to have a “real” domain name and I am unsure as to the consequences of not and the best way to set it up in this circumstance.  BTW the server is up and running just fine. The Exchange is working internally for email and calendar etc.

    It wants you to run that wizard so that it knows what email domain it will be dealing with.  So even though you don't have a static IP you should still run the wizard and tell it what the domain is.  Then it will create a entry and when you run the POP3 connector it will pick up the information it needs.  Since you are using the POP3 connector to retrieve mail you will not need the Static IP pointed to that entry, but the connector still needs to see it.
