I need a real exchange guru for this one

By Shanghai Sam ·
Here's my problem:
Running exchange 5.5 on an NT4 network. The main bulk of our email comes thru our university servers setup as a web access(a pop3 address). So we set up the users exchange accounts to access the exchange server mostly for scheduling and such. In addition we setup the pop3 accounts on each user's profile and have the address set as their default email.

The problem we have is that any email sent internally stays on the exchange server and does not go out to the pop3 account, even though we have that set as their default outgoing. This causes a problem because half the staff and faculty is offsite several days a week and needs to access their account through the webaccess setup.

Would the best way be for me tosetup the exchange server to be scheduling only and not any email? Then have all their email setup for the pop3? And how would I do that?

If your answer gives me what I need I'll gladly give you 2000 points. This is a real problem for my end users.

Here you go.

Configure a Custom Recipient for all of the pop3 accounts, custom recipients are used for all accounts not located on your exchange server.

Then on all of the mailboxes you want mail to forward to their pop account. Configure the Alternate Recipient with the individuals Custom Recipient. This way any mail sent to the users mailbox will be sent to their pop address.
