POP3 settings for Outlook 2003


  • HI All,
     Thanks in Advance!

    We have Exchange 2007 SP1 - I am trying to setup a user to access e-mail using Outlook 2003 and configure his Black Berry to pull e-mails using POP settings.

    Right now if I could get the Outlook 2003 to work that would be great.

    On the server, I have the POP3 and IMAP4 services started. The user has POP3 and IMAP4 enabled for their Mailbox.
    Under Server Config, Client Access, POP3 and IMAP4 tab, POP3 bindings tab shows  Port 110 in the top box and Port 995 in the bottom box.
    For authentication I have Secure Logon. ( I am not sure if I need to change this option)

    Under Server Config, Hub Transport, at the bottom under Receive connectors I have one for Client and Default

    For the Client Connector I am not sure under the General Tab if the FQND needs to be the name needs to be  mail.domain.local or mail.domain.com(external)

    The error that I am receiving on the Outlook 2003 client is it fails to log onto incoming mail server (POP3).
    I have the Incoming server (POP3) set to port 995 and Outgoing server SMTP is port 25.

    I know that I am missing something easy so any info will help.

  • I made some  changes listed below:

    Set-ImapSettings -LoginType PlainTextLogin
    Set-popsettings -LoginType PlainTextLogin

    I restarted the services for POP3 and  IMAP4

    Now the Send test e-mail message is the only option that fails.

    I am not sure anymore if this is the right way to go about doing this.

    Before I move forward, is there a better way of setting up a remote user to check their e-mail. I have OWA setup but he wants everything to go through his Outlook.

    Normally I set up remote users with VPN access and they connect the VPN and then Outlook connects to the server but this user works for another company and has two other e-mail addresses running through Outlook so I did not want to go the VPN route for him.

  • Hi,

    If you want to use Outlook remotely, then I think you can try to configure Outlook Anywhere for these remote users.

    Deploying Outlook Anywhere


    Configure Outlook Anywhere in Outlook 2007


    For receive connector, these are the default connector, please do not modify settings on these connector.

    Besides,I recommend you to not use secure logon and then check the issue again.
