POP Access for Exchange Corporate Users

Hello - we have acquired a small company whose users we need to give POP access to our Exchange 2003 server.  Our regular existing users are not configured for POP, and we've never used it before, so we're looking for advice on this.  thanks

Is there a reason why you don't consider setting up Outlook Anywhere? Better service that POP and easier to manage.

Well - we're not aware of what that is.  Is that available to Exchange 2003?  We started out setting them up for OWA access, which is working, but then realized they don't have archive PST access with that (2010 does now).  So - because they already have their Outlook clients setup for POP access already, we are thinking this is a quick alternative for them, that allows them to continue archiving, and it's a methiod they're used to.
It is available but since you haven't set it up, you can just use POP if you'd like.
To enable POP, you will have to start some services that are disabled by default.
Follow this article and let me know how it goes.

Ok - thanks.  I was able to get it to work once when using my own administrator account from an outside computer, but strangely...it fails now, when I try it again.  Nothing works now, and it seems to be related to either authentication or communication with Exchange.  But it worked once!! and nothing changed since then...

Well - it's working now.  not sure what happened with the authentication, but it seems like it needed a little time to settle and work correctly maybe, on Exchange.  Thanks for your help gentlemen.
Sorry Spartan - I was thinking there were multiple users involved, but it's only you!  thanks for yourt help.
