POP3 Connector

Hi,

I have a POP3 connector in exchange 2003, which is linked to external POP3 server. We are introducing Exchange 2010 in the same domain. How do I bring the settings from POP3 in exchange 2003 to exchange 2010 as we have to get rid of exchange 2003 when all the user accounts are migrated.

Thanks.

Exchange 2010 does not have a built-in POP3 connector the way that SBS 2003 does.

In order to have Exchange 2010 go out to a POP3 mailbox and pull email into an Exchange mailbox (which is what it sounds like you're trying to do), you'll have two options:

1 - Get a third-party app to connect to POP3 mailboxes and drop the mail into Exchange. I don't know of such an app, but I'm certain someone has come up with one.

2 - Set up the POP3 account on the users' Outlook profile, and set the Exchange mailbox as the destination. The primary downside to this is that the email will only be delivered if Outlook is open.
