POP3 email Problem.



  • 1. TightVNC
    Our software developer want's us to install TightVNC on a few of our workstations in order for them to offer remote user support. Should I be worried about this, or is TightVNC a fairly safe bet for our SBS2003 Standard network? Waggers
  • 2. sbs old to new server licensing question
    Hi We have an old dell server which came preinstalled with sbs 2003. Can we get a new barebones dell server and use the existing license/cds to install sbs? We will be dumping the old server so only one copy of sbs will be used. Thanks Regards
  • 3. Time synchronization with SBS 2003
    I currently support a number of small companies (clients) that operate on separate subnets on my company's IP network. The firewall is between my company and the outside (Internet), and thre are several v-lans to isolate traffic internally. Two of these companies are running SBS 2003, and both have the same issue, which none of the other ten companies that I support have (they all run non-sbs servers). Neither sbs server has ISA installed. If I attempt to configure either server to use an external timne source, I only get messages in the System Event Log that it can't connect. I've tried "tock.usno.navy.mil", "navods1.wustl.edu", "0.pool.ntp.org", and others, all with the same result. All of my other PDC's connect to "tock.usno.navy.mil" with no problems. All of the "companies" go thru the same firewall. Portqry for UDP port 123 shows it "listening or filtering". Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
  • 4. Will deny-ing SMTP inbound on port 25 kill exchange outbound on port 25?
    This Weird question of the day is premised on the observation that one of the messages that was returned in an NDR attack was actually a spam message that I had received. This is happening at night when all the client computers are turned off. And as I just use Exchange SMTP to send email out, and the pop3 connector to retrieve it, it occurred to me that I could foil the attack by denying inbound SMTP using ISA4000. Currently, I am unplugging the WAN line from the DSL modem. So, at least, I can do this during the nightly downtime. But I would like to know if I can run this way all day, and still get mail out. Do the SMTP hand shakes go in and out on port 25? Hollis Paul Mukilteo, WA USA
  • 5. Spyware on an SBS client and what to do?
    A little circular (red with a white X in it) icon appear in the app tray, and when one puts a pointer on it, a message balloon pops up saying that Windows XP had detected spyware and that we should click there to download the latest anti-spyware tools from Microsoft. Clicking there brought up a command window but nothing was downloaded. Is this a known virus or spyware, and what is the best way of cleaning the computer? The infected computer is running Windows XP SP2 and fairly recently was updated. But not the SP3 cycle. The spyware message hasn't propagated to any of the other client computers in the network.

POP3 email Problem.

Postby TWVocmFu » Sun, 29 Oct 2006 09:58:01 GMT


One of my client's changed their Business name, therefore the also changed 
their email addresses.  As their old email addresses are no longer 
functional, all their emails were re-directed to the new email addresses.  In 
order to make these changes in exchange (using SBS2003), I created a new 
recipient policy and applied these changes, then changed all user accounts to 
default to these new email addresses.  As they are using the Pop3 to retrieve 
their emails, I also changed their POP3 details to conform with the new 
emails.  Then I retrieved the emails from the Pop3 connection to be 
distributed to the corresponding accounts.  The problem is that the stacked 
emails (over 200 of them) received, were never delivered.  I can see the in 
email tracking system as being submitted to the Categorize.  Mind you when I 
restarted the SBS server, all emails now are going to the right recipients, 
however those 200 email are not delivered and I don't know how to get them 

Any Idea?

Ditch POP and host your own mail for both domains - make the new one the 
default, but retain the old one so your users don't lose mail. No forwarding 
is necessary.

See  http://www.**--****.com/

As to how to recover from your current predicament, somoene more familiar

1.POP3 email problem....

I have a client that has a domain that they want all of their email to come
through on, however not everyone in the company has a *.com email address,
so they have to use their *.local address. My problem is that I have set up
a user to use another of the company's *.com email addresses (for example,
let's say the person's default *.local address is  XXXX@XXXXX.COM 
and I want her to have an assigned *.com email address of
 XXXX@XXXXX.COM .)  I've set this up both in the users settings as
well as the Manage POP3 email settings and the server still changes the user
back to the fictitious  XXXX@XXXXX.COM  address which they do not have.
What am I missing or not configuring properly? Please help!

2.POP3 Email Problems

Hi Steven

When you run the CEICW from the Todo list and setup your email yo setup the 
mail as forward  thru your ISP and receive thru POP3.  You add the user 
names to the POP3 connecter in Echange System Manager with user name and 
password and select User Mailbox. You setup the SMTP Connector to Forward 
all Mail to your Smarthost SMTP Server and on Address Space Tab Enter SMTP * 

Ck your users that the Default email (bold) is .com and not .local and you 
are set

4.sbs 2003 pop3 email problem

I have a client using sbs2003 with pop3 connector.  They have one person who 
is using a MAC and wants to use pop3 only(connect to ISP directly).  I 
removed them from the server.

The problem is anyone in the company that sends him an email gets a bounce 
back stating undeliverable.  When anyone who mails to him outside the 
company, it  works fine.

I assume that since the mycompany.com is where it is going, it only tries to 
send to an address on the server.

Thank you in advance.

5.Pop3 Email problem

I receive the following error on a client computer on my SBS2003 network whe 
n trying to access email with Outlook Express:

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for 
this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of 
inactivity. Account: 'xleng.com_Keith', Server: 'pop3.covadmail.net', 
Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

I have tried importing account settings for another email account known to 
work on other clients on our network, and I still get the same results.  
Also, if I export this account to another client machine, it works fine.  I 
have also received a similar error when using Thunderbird as the mail client 
on this machine.

This is a brand new computer with XP pro installed.  I have removed the 
anti-virus software on it.  The machine connects to the internet through a 
proxy (ISA Server).

Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.
