    Hi,

    I've got a new client that is using multiple pop accounts on each PC (eg.
    pop1 - , pop2 - ) rather than Exchange for their
    email. I would love to change them over to Exchange (They have SBS 2003 and
    Exch is running but doing nothing!!) and either use full SMTP to get the
    email in or maybe the pop connector in the interim....

    There is a sticking point though - they reply from different pop accounts
    based on who the email is addressed to (they select the correct pop account
    from the pulldown in Outlook) - how would I do this if they used Exchange
    for their email?

    cheers and regards

  2. I would If possible reg all domains and MX point them to the SBS servers IP
    adress and there fore use SMTP (Exchange) for all.

    If thats not possible, use Exchange for sending for as many domains as
    possible and then use pop-connector for the rest of the pop accounts.

  3. SMTP for sure.
    It won't work like this automatically. You can set it up to send only as the
    default/reply address. Check out ChooseFrom at www.ivasoft.biz for an
    add-on.

    "Lanwench [MVP - Exchange]"
    thats exactly what I'm looking for from Ivasoft - might be a little pricy
    for my client....(-;

    I might have to go with the annoying way of creating individual mailboxes
    for each address and then the users can select the From box in Outlook...a
    bit yukky but seems to work....

    thanks everyone for your advise!!
