    we are using a SBS 2003 and we get email from an ISP trough POP3 Connector.

    Unfortunately, ISP started to use SSL in POP3 acounts.
    How can we do it with POP3 Connector?

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for posting here.

    From your post, I understand that you want to configure POP3 connector to
    use SSL connection. If I am off-base, please feel free to let me know.

    Currently the POP3 Connector only supports SPA (Secure Password
    Authentication) and changing the default port, it does not support POP3
    over SSL. You might want to check with your ISP may include configuring
    ETRN or TURN for SMTP mail flow on demand from your end. I suggest you send
    feedback to our product team at so that they can
    consider adding this feature in the future release of POP3 Connector.

    If your have to check your POP3 mailbox using SSL, you can try third party
    POP3 Connectors such as "Native POP3 Connector" or POPBeamer. For more
    information, please refer the following web site:

    I use SmartPOP2Exchange from JAM Software

    I aggree, the easiest way is to use a third party pop3 connector.
    Those third party pop3 connectors have a better error handling, more configuration options, like smaller intervalls for pulling messages and often ship with additional features like backup, spam filter and rules.
    I use SmartPOP2Exchange from JAM Software which supports SSL and TLS for all connections including POP3 and IMAP accounts.
