I have sbs 2003 premium and want to get the pop3 connector working

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by stan johnson jr, Feb 6, 2007.

  1. I am trying to use our pop3 account but I can't connect and telnet the pop3
    server, something is blocking and I can't find out what. System is not
    working good, even owa is not working anymore.

    Hi - unfortunately, your post is a bit light on detail for anyone to do much
    other than guess. You'll get more useful replies if you provide full
    details of the situation, symptoms, your actual config (including service
    packs), firewall settings, what kind of internet connection you use (and
    whether it has any port blocking), how you configured ISA, event log errors,
    whether this used to work, what happened right before it stopped working,
    and so forth.

    Beyond that, all I can say is "run the CEICW" and make sure you've enabled
    whatever you want enabled.

  3. what happened was our owa was too slow for our clients and aside from getting
    a T1 line, I had to do something. 1. I tried to change our website from the
    default website to our website and I read this wasn't recommended. Anyway
    after a few posts, I tried to get it to change and changing certificates and
    stuff, it got messed up and now owa won't work anymore. I can't get it back
    to the original settings. I ran CEICW a few times with different results each
    time. Anyway to fix this owa problem and get faster service, I set up pop3
    accounts at our provider for everyone but I used the same fqdn. ours fo the
    exchange was '
    I set up a pop3 account that is pop3.eskaosnibc.ns.ca. I tried to pop3
    connector with another pop3 acouunt I have and it worked. When I tried to use
    this one with the same name, I am getting no mail. Is there a process or help
    file as to how to use the two names and make them work with exchange. I
    also forgot to mention that the mx record is no longer pointing to our box
    but to the pop3 account on the server at the isp. I am going on vacation
    friday and I have to resolve this, other than the users will have to log onto
    the internet and retrieve their mail that way.

    Help required asap
