    For my small group of users I tried to implement the POP3 Connector on
    Exchange; the primary e-mail domain is administered at another location. It
    was ugly. After three users the POP3 Connector stopped.

    Anyway, I thought why not just add POP3 accounts to Outlook 2003 but keep
    Exchange as the default.

    Anybody have any experience with this configuration?

    Yes, and it sucks, frankly. I'd avoid it - it's slow, inefficient,
    decentralized and is more of a pain than anything else. I'm not a huge fan
    of POP connectors, either....but if you can't get the people who manage the
    'parent' domain to switch you over to a subdomain, or configure their server
    to forward mail to unresolved recipients to your server via SMTP, you might
    look at POPBeamer.
