    New installation of SBS. Have POP3 service configured
    and up. Internal clients are connecting to the POP3 with
    no problems. External clients cannot access POP3 on
    external interface. However, I can telnet to port 110 on
    the external interface FROM the SBS server.

    Ideas?

    If you have a firewall (Other than using the SBS Server.)
    you will have to Forward the Ports 25 and 110 to the SBS Server.

    If you Don't have a firewall and are just using the SBS Server Sounds like a
    DNS issue
    Mayb you to make a DNS Forward and or Reverse (Depending on your case)
    :)

    I'm (trying to) telnetting into the IP addresses, so
    hopefully that eliminates any DNS issues. From the SBS
    server, I can telnet to internal and external IP's port
    110. From inside, I can telnet to the internal IP. From
    outside, "connect failed" after timing out.

  4. Configure your Routing and Remote Access Server to forward the traffic to the specified internal IP address and port number. It may solve your problem.
