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

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
Thanks I will download it and try it out.

Do I NEED to install it on an email server?, Or any server will do?
Any server will do best not do it on an existing mail server
Ok Thanks.....
