We have a Exchange 2003 server, we want to setup POP3 and SMTP so that users can access their e-mails through Outlook Express and not OWA.
Is there any documentation out there on how to do this?
Quite easy to configure without the extra security (included in the tutorial above) just need to enable (set to automatic startup) the POP3 Server service in the Services MMC and go into the Exchange system manager and make sure that POP3 Virtual server is running.
When logging in you need to use either a full email address ie email@example.com or your full domain credentials domain\me unless you set up a default domain in the configuration.
Do you need to purchase ISA Server 2000, or is it bundled with Server 2003????
You don't need ISA to enable POP3 on an Exchange. Just enable the POP3 connector services.Originally Posted by faza
By default, the POP3 and IMAP4 virtual servers are disabled on a new installation of Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003. To enable the POP3 and IMAP4 virtual servers, you must first use the Services snap-in to Microsoft Management Console (MMC) and set the services to start automatically.
To enable a POP3, IMAP4, or NNTP virtual server
In the Services snap-in, in the console tree, click Services (Local).
In the details pane, right-click Microsoft Exchange POP3 or Microsoft Exchange IMAP4, or Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP), and then click Properties.
On the General tab, under Startup type, select Automatic, and then click Apply.
Under Service status, click Start, and then click OK.
Within Outlook what are the settings for the POP3 address and SMTP.
The incomming POP3 server FQDN needs to resolve to the public IP address for the mail server, and the outgoing SMTP server can be the same.
Say you have a public DNS a record registered for mail.yourschool.com which resolves to 126.96.36.199 your incomming POP3 server will be mail.yourschool.com
Your firewall or (county firewall) will also need to be configured to allow TCP port 110 (pop3) to and from your Exchange server.
Also for the the username use the format: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ok i will have to ask the asuthority to open port TCP 110
It may already be open as some authorities are good and proactive and open all the ports you need to host a mail server others on the other hand need a bit of this :violent1:Originally Posted by faza
Yea So in Outlook express i create as new account and put
The username i put as username@mydomain.......
In that case pop3.mydomain.com and smtp.mydomain.com will need to point to the Exchange server public IP address and both ports (25) and (110) need to be open.
Correct but in this case you will need to register both domains.
I would just register mail.mydomain.com point it to you Exchange server public IP address and open ports 25 (SMTP) 80 (OWA) 443 (SSL) 110 (POP3) and use that for both SMTP and POP3 traffic.
Do you mean register mail.mydomain.com in the dns as i have done that

Enter your full domain here. http://www.zoneedit.com/lookup.html
As long as it resolves to a public IP it should be fine, then all you need to do is get a big hammer and bash a hole through the county firewall for port 110 and 25 :violent1:
It did not resolve anything.
I'm not doing very well am i?
