    It sounds like a firewall is dropping your connect request somewhere. Had the connection request reached the destination node and that node then refused it, you would have got a different error. Initially check the firewall settings on That is the public server so I imagine the settings will be quite tight. You only want to allow connections to the necessary ports from the node running the archiving software.

    How was it solved? Was it firewall-related as I suggested? The internal team's solution might be of interest to others - why not post it?

    Accepted Solution

    Hi All,

    It's not a firewall issue, Exchange 2007 & Mailarchiva server are on same local network, no firewall restrictions, IMAP / POP telnet from Mailarchiva server to Exchange is working fine.

    Mailarchiva is working fine with Exchange 2010 lab server but still it's not working with Exchange 2007.

    Sorry for the delay.
    duncan_roe: Thanks for your response.
