Unable to connect Outlook 2013 to Exchange 2013 using POP3

Dear All


      I have a exchange 2013, and i was trying to connect the exchange mailbox in outlook 2013 by using POP3, the login box keep poping up, and i did a test from below testing link with POP3, it was success without any problem, and enabled pop3 and IMAP from below services, any idea ?

https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/

 1. On the Exchange Client Access server, open Windows Task Manager. On the Services tab, the status for MSExchangePOP3 will show as Running if POP3 is enabled.

 2. On the Exchange Mailbox server, open Windows Task Manager. On the Services tab, the status for MSExchangePOP3BE will show as Running if POP3 is enabled.

Why are you using POP3? Awful protocol, no place in a business environment. Use Outlook Anywhere only, if not possible, then use IMAP.

the exchange server and the outlook client is not in the same network, the exchange is in the datacenter and for outlook anywhere is it i need to use CA and i do need to apply the CA outside ?  and for IMAP i have tried, also can not connect, the password box keep prompting out

The location of the Exchange server is completely immaterial. Outlook Anywhere is designed to be used over the internet, using just port 443. You will need an external trusted SSL certificate for it to work correctly.

Does OWA work correctly?

Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
A trusted certificate is pretty much a requirement with Exchange 2013. You can purchase a suitable certificate for less than US$80/year. Considering the cost of Exchange, to fail on the last part to make everything work correctly seems foolish. The self signed certificates generated by Exchange are not supported for production use.
