    hi

    using SBS2003 Pop3 connector and everything is fine.

    Is there a way to keep a copy of the emails on the remote ISP server after
    they have been downloaded to our server by Pop3 connector? You know like
    Outlook express, where you can check a box thata says" Kepp a copy on the
    server after emails downloded".

    Regards
    Koosha

    Thank you for the reply. I found an old post with the instruction to edit the
    registery and it works and keeps a copy on the server, but guess what, our
    exchange downloads all the emails on the remote server again and agin for
    ever! I wonder if yur suggested Pop beamer has the same problem. Any idea?

    Not officially. There is a registry hack which you can probably find
    with Google. You will, of course, download the same messages multiple
    times, which may not be a problem for you. POP3 does not support a
    'read/unread' flag.

  5. No PopBeamer is designed not to do that. I could have told you that the
    registry hack was for testing only and would fill up your mailbox :>)
    Another advantage of Beamer is that like the fast car you can download
    faster than every 15 minutes.

    This is old news but there is also a registry hack that will make Microsoft
    POP3 download at a rate less than 15 minuets too. There are some things to
    consider when doing that as with anything such as the overall traffic that
    the WAN connection will/could have. If there are a bunch of large e-mail
    messages that don't get completed when the connector starts to collect
    messages again! I haven't noticed any problems with having my server set to
    check every 5 minuets but there are not many users either!
