Indeed--the pop3 connector works fine (better, in fact) on SBS 2008. It is
reached via the SBS console directly, perhaps unexpectedly, however.
We have two MX records--one for the Exchange server, and one for our ISP's
We maintain the basic staff addresses on the webserver, and the POP3
connector is set to pull from it every 15 minutes.
The primary content it gets is spam, some of which goes directly to that
server. However, it also gets webform content, which ends up in the
web-based mailboxes, and, if our connection is down, mail collects in the
user mailboxes, and is collected via the pop3 connector when we come back
Which is happening right now, in fact. Verizon, even with a fixed IP
business account, is proving very unreliable at the moment.
