    Can you pop into exchange from the internet (not intranet) or does it require a secondary setup/addon

    You have to enable it on the Exchange server, but its something that's built right into Exchange.

    Yea don't much care for the pop issue but still rebuilding this crashed exchange server from a month ago now their telling me their employee's can't pop in. They never told me they had external clients that pop in. Having to re-create scenarios with limited knowledge is a burden sometimes :hs:

    thanks guys

    Don't bother with POP3. Enable IMAP support instead. It'll give you all the same email functions as Exchange, but it'll work with Thunderbird/Eudora/KMail/etc as well as Outlook.

    Don't all those clients support POP3 also? I would tend to agree about IMAP being better since it lessens the possibility of someone removing all the mail from their mailbox.

    How would you retain your email for example if you have two locations to check email and remoting into your computer at work isn't an option if you pop in to check email say today you get all your email from today, go into work tomorrow you won't see that email from yesterday because it is already downloaded to your computer at home from yesterday

    You use IMAP instead, that's how. Everything is stored on the server AND on every machine configured to access the email account.

    I kinda figured it was imap I use this feature on linux servers. Pop portion was easy for exchange actually once I started reading it, pop service was disabled. And I have IMAP4 enabled under exchange under protocols so all I have to do is enable it as a service I suppose and walah

    Yeah if you're not sure, IMAP is safer for dumb users.
