MS Exchange and POP3 Mail

By gra ·
I have MS Exchange installed on NT 4.0 with NT sp6a.

I can see the pop3 connector under protocols. It is enabled.

Now I want email to flow through to me "gra@abelson.com" through Exchange server, into my MS Outlook.

gra is an alias. Let'ssay my real account name is abelson1 and my pop3 mail server is mail.abelson.com.

How to I tell Exchange that mail to gra@abelson.com gets sent to my Outlook.

I have set this up several times with RAS (with a single global account) and with SBS NT (with its pop3 connector) -- but never with Exchange server and DSL.

Thanks

I thing that more details are necessary: are you actually using the Internet? Are you in the same site as your Exchange server? How are you sending the messages to your Exchange server? I any case, Exchange does not send the messages to your Outlookclient. Outlook must be setup to pick up the messages from the server. If I have understood what you need, you should configure Outlook as a POP3 client.
Send me an e-mail if you need more details.

I AM on the internet.
The Exchange server is at the same site. I want the Exchange server to receive inbound email from the internet. I want to have Outlook get the email from the server.

I do NOT want to configure Outlook to receive email directly!! I want ALL traffice in/out intra office and internet to flow through the Exchange Server.

I understand all the pieces except inbound internet (pop3) email.

You can have multiple SMTP (Internet) email id's point to the same Exchange Mailbox. To add additional email addresses, go into the Exchange Admin program, find the user from Receipients, go to properties, then the email tab, and click add. Add the additional SMTP address.
Question? How do you have Outlook configured? It can either attach to Exchange through MAPI (Exchange Server Service) or via POP3/IMAP4/SMTP (Internet Mail Account)
When an SMTP message arrives at an Exchange server, it looks through the Directory Service for a matching email address, then deposits that message into the mailbox. With multiple address you can have a single mailbox, but receive from multiple addresses.
Let me know if you need more information, or ifI have not understood your question correctly.

I re-read you question and the first answer and your following comment and I think I better understand your question. You want all email sent to gra@abelson.com to arrive at the exchange server.
For this to happen you need to have MX records available on the internet that point email to @abelson.com to be sent to mail.abelson.com. This is done through SMTP routing on the internet and has nothing to do with POP3. POP3 is a retreival protocol used to get email from a SMTP server through a POP3 client. Exchange is not a POP3 client, but the POP3 connector for SBS gives it that function.

I think that now I understand. You need:
1) Make sure that your ISP has added a MX record to his DNS for your domain (the domain that will receive your emails). You may also need an alias record for the Internet Mai Srvice host name that defines the host TCP/IP address.
2) Install the Internet Mail Service using the Internet Mail Wizard.
3) Customize it by using the Internet Mail Service tabs in the Exchange Server Admin program.
4) Stop and restart the Internet Mail Service
5) Test the connection
6) You email will go to your inbox together with your internal exchange mail. You retrieve them with Outlook.
You can have more information by reading Chapter 5 of "Microsoft Exchange Server - Operations" that is one of the books that youcan find in your Exchange Server CD or in Help if you installed them.

Good luck

Hi

Alternatively, if you are trying to pick mail up from a POP3 mailbox then you will need an external collection program such as Popbeamer (www.popbeam.com) which allows mail to be collected from a number of ISP POP3 mailboxes and then transferred into Exchange via a local SMTP collection.

Exchange then routes the mail as if it had recieved them from the Internet directly via SMTP.

This can be very useful, esp. in a small business situation using simple email forwarding.
