SBS 2008 - can't get POP email
Posted on 2011-10-20
Running SBS 2008 - POP3 is set to download mail from an offsite mail server then distribute it to network users. the mail is coming into the offsite server but SBS won't donwload it. Whenever I do the 'Retrieve Now', I get this error:
Cannot connect to the SMTP server 'localhost' on port 25. The error code was 0x800ccc0e. Verify that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service is running and that the Exchange receive connectors are properly configured.
I don't know why I'm getting an SMTP error since we're downloading with POP3. We've been using this POP3 setup forever - before we upgraded to SBS 2008 7 months ago. It was working fine one day and then just stopped working. Nothing was changed configuration wise at all. There was a recent update about a week ago.
I removed mailbox quotas but I don't think that's the problem.
