Hello

I want to open PORT 110 on our Exchange Server 2003. POP3 Service was disabled so I set to to automatic and when I try to start it, it won't.

When I try to telnet to port 110 on our Exchange it fails with error:

....Could not open connection to the host,
 on port 110: Connect failed

Please advise.

Thanks

check the builtin firewall on the server, and try to telnet locally i.e 127.0.0.1:110

If you can telnet it will be a upstream problem in a router not having the correct destnat rule. to make it ensure that the source is 0.0.0.0:0 to [serverip]:110

post any entries in the event log that appear while starting the service
