Need Help with POP3 Problem on Exch2003
I have this one guy outside the office that cannot get his mail via pop 3.
I have visited this site and attempted to setup a pop3 profile myself.
When I test the account, it says that it could not logon to the smtp server.
I have two other users that have POP3 outside the office. However, they do not use their email within the office as this guy does. He has a PC at his office at work and one at home. The one at the office uses a Microsoft Exchange Connection and the laptop should be using a POP3 connection.
The only other difference is that this guy uses an email address that is different from his network logon. i.e. John@domain.com and Domain\Doej. The other users use the same email addy as it appears in their logon.
I have changed his primary smtp to match his user logon and that does not work.
It is a very weird problem. I would like to delete his account and add it back, but I fear losing his Exchange mailbox. He has over 2000 contacts and uses his calendar and tasks, both of which are fully booked. All this info is synched with a Palm, so I'd really be messing him up if I fubared it just trying something. This is really making me look like an idiot. Can anyone help me to look less stupid?
There are many rewarding oppurtunities awaiting composure from like minds and great ideas. It in my objective to interconnect great things.
