Exchange POP3 Connector

By jspaz ·
I am running Exchange 2000 with 35 users. I use the POP3 connector to retrieve mail from a shared mailbox at our ISP and download into Exchange for distribution to users. The shortest interval for checking mail is 15 minutes. Some users need more imediate access to mail from outside the office. Is there a better alternative to the POP3 connector? Can I create separate mailboxes at the ISP and configure Outlook on each desktop to retrieve mail while staying in the Exchange environment?

If you are happy to have separate mailboxes at the ISP, then that would be the simplest way to do it. You can have Outlook retrieve mail as often as you want and if you set Outlook to deliver all new mail to the Exchange mailbox (which is almost always the case when using Exchange), then any new mail coming in from the ISP will go into the Inbox of the Exchange mailbox and hence come into the Exchange system.
