A. Exchange does not really support the downloading of mail from POP3 since you would be asking a Server to act like a client. A 3rd party piece of software called PULLMAIL which can be downloaded from http://www.swsoft.co.uk/index.asp?page=freesoftware can be used to download from a POP3 mailbox and deposit in an Exchange mailbox. Using the command procedure below it can be made to download from multiple POP3 mailboxes and depost in the correct mailbox.

Enter the following into file getmail.cmd and save.

The next step is to create the file that GETMAIL.CMD will read in, POPUSERS.DAT. Below is an example. GETMAIL.CMD expects to find the file in the %systemroot% directory (e.g. d:\winnt) however you can change that by altering the "SET POPUSERS=.." line.

POPusers.dat
; space or comma delimited file
; 1. ISP pop server 2. POP3 account 3. POP3 password 4. EXCHANGE username
