Need Help Adding POP3 email to Server 2008 R2

Hello Experts,

I need to set up a POP3 email server on one of my spare Servers because we need POP3 settings to use for various devices that send email throughout the network. Like copiers, Etc.

I haven't set up POP3 in years, I tried to do some searches with no help.

What do I need to do?

Can't your copiers etc use smtp, in most cases it is better to create a new connector to allow these devices to send rather thn using pop3a

Yes they use SMTP, and usually we use Godaddy smtp settings for a domain we own that is not our main email domain. We just created an email address named donotreply@our_2nd-domain.com

But many times we have issues with Godaddy, Some devices won't authenticate no matter what settings we use. So I figured it would be easier to just set up our own in-house email server for these types of devices.

Our main email is hosted with Google Apps and that;s even worse because it requires SSL & TLS and we just have more issues then because most of the emailing devices/software only really works with pop3/smtp

In that case try something like  hmailserver

Do I NEED to install it on an email server?, Or any server will do?
