Is it possible to set SBS 2011 to work as a POP server?

I have enabled the POP service, added a firewall rule to forward port 110 to the internal server verified in EMC that POP is a valid collection type

When I try to configure a client it refuses to authenticate with the username and password that the user would use from his PC.

Many thanks for your time and effort

Exactly what format are you entering the username in?
You can use SBS 2011 as a POP3 server, but the format of the user name needs to be correct.

The easiest method to use is username@example.local (the UPN value). That is easy to implement. However Exchange 2010 uses a secure authentication by default, so unless you have disabled that you need to enable secure authentication in your POP3 client.

If the clients have Outlook it is easier and more secure, as well as providing a more pleasant experience, to use Outlook Anywhere.  Pop3 sends passwords in clear text, iirc.
