    I have a client that would like to have his SBS Mail connected to a gmail
    account, has anyone done this and has it working. If you do could you give
    me some pointers on getting it working.. I think it has something to do with
    the Port 995 that it uses and the ssl login..

    BTW Yes I have changed the pop3 connector to use the port 995.

    Thanks.

    Gmail allows you to forward email.
    Just have his Gmail forward to his other mailbox...

    Or enable POP on your Gmail account and have him pick up the mail himself.

    Why you'd want the Server to pick up the mail is beyond me,
    but if this is the case just have it pick up the pop mail

    Or am I making this too simple again?

    I have that part going, and can view it in Outlook express... But the GMail
    system needs you to use ssl for the connection, and I can not see the
    settings in the pop connector.

    As for why... Normal thing, Client wants it... Me personally would be using
    Exchange to send and recieve, but when the client asks...
