Pop connector in SBS03 at 1 minute?

Is it possible to get pop connector in sbs03 to retrive emails in 1 minute
rather than 15 minutes. What is the reason that minium is 15 minutes.

POP3 as a protocol was never meant to be used between servers. Many ISPs
won't let you query a server much more often than that because of the
network overhead it incurs and, along with some security concerns (passwords
are sent in clear text by default, for example), querying too often can get
your ISP to lock you out, slow down your server if there are multiple
mailboxes, and increases the chance that someone can sniff out your ISP
passwords.

If you want faster email delivery, look at moving to SMTP. The pop3
connector is a tool to help new SBS installations migrate from ISP-stored
emails to in-house email, but should not be used as a long-term solution.

Is it possible - yes, IIRC, there is a registry hack to reduce the interval
to less than 15 minutes. Is it advisable - probably not. If the POP3
Manager is downloading mail when another POP3 download event is triggered,
there is a potential for things to go pear-shaped. That said, there are
also 3rd party POP3 retrieval products that will allow you to set the
interval to less than 15 minutes.

.... plus, what Cliff said about lock outs from your ISP.

Along with the other reasons mentioned
You can have Duplication of messages and in some cases Delayed Messages.
(if they are large.)

Change your MX Records Open up Port 25
and don't use the POP3 at all
Easier, and it works..

And you are not passing everyone's passwords in PLAIN Text over the WAN
(Like you are with POP3)
