POP3 Mailbox (CEICW)

You can define a new POP3 (Post Office Protocol 3) mailbox or modify the connection information of an existing POP3 mailbox.

Under POP3 server information, you must define the POP3 server information for the POP3 mailbox that you want to download using the Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes.

 

Item Description

E-mail server

Type the fully qualified host name or IP address of the POP3 server. For example, the fully qualified host name could be the server name of your e-mail server followed by its registered Internet domain name, such as ServerName.msn.com. Your Internet service provider (ISP) provides this information.

Port

Type the TCP port used by your ISP for POP3 e-mail. Your ISP provides this information. Generally, the port number is 110.

User name

Type the name used to log on to the POP3 mailbox account at your ISP. Your ISP provides this information.

noteNote
If you modify the user name, be sure your ISP has made the change in their settings as well.

Password

Type the password used to log on to the POP3 mailbox account at your ISP. To verify the password was entered correctly, retype it in Confirm password.

noteNote
If you modify the password, be sure your ISP has made the change in their settings as well.

Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)

Specifies whether to log on using encrypted authentication credentials each time the Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes downloads POP3 e-mail.

Some ISPs require that you use Secure Password Authentication (SPA). It is recommended that you select this option if your ISP supports it.

Under Mailbox information, you must define the mailbox information necessary for downloading POP3 e-mail with the connector.

 

Item Description

Mailbox type

In the list, click to define whether e-mail from your POP3 mailbox account will be delivered to one Exchange mailbox or to a distribution group, or to multiple Exchange mailboxes.

  • User mailbox. Specifies that the POP3 mailbox account at your ISP will map to an Exchange mailbox or distribution group.
  • Global mailbox. Specifies a single POP3 mailbox account at your ISP designated to receive all e-mail sent to your company or domain. When POP3 e-mail is downloaded, Exchange will read the recipients on the To and Cc lines of the message and then forward the message to the correct Exchange mailboxes.
    For example, Chris@wingtiptoys.com and Kelly@wingtiptoys.com both deliver to a generic company mailbox called everyone@wingtiptoys.com. When the mailbox is accessed by the connector, Exchange reads the recipients on the To and Cc lines, and then forwards the message to the corresponding Exchange mailboxes.
ImportantImportant
If the POP3 user name for the POP3 mailbox does not match the user name for the Exchange mailbox, you must define a routing rule. For example, if e-mail is sent to the POP3 mailbox using Chris@wingtiptoys.com, then the Exchange mailbox name must be Chris. To define a routing rule, use the POP3 Connector Manager. For more information about defining a routing rule, click Start, and then click Help and Support.

Exchange mailbox

In the list, click to define the user or distribution group where the POP3 mail will be delivered.

noteNote
This option is not available if you are adding or modifying a global mailbox.

E-mail domain

Type the e-mail domain name for this global mailbox. The e-mail domain is used as the e-mail address for users who send e-mail to the Internet. For example, if wingtiptoys.msn.com was the e-mail domain, the e-mail address could be Chris@wingtiptoys.msn.com.

noteNote
This option is only available for global mailboxes.
