Pop2Exchange Issue? - 22.Jan.2008 2:12:49 PM

Wonderful Forum I must start off saying.
Here is my problem. The place I work for used to host their email through a POP3 account. I pushed them to invest in an Exchange server for obvious reasons. In doing that, I used GFI MailEssentials, with Pop2Exchange. We have a woman who is hardly EVER in the office, so she is not connected to the domain. However, she is using the same pop setup to send/recieve mail, due to pop2exchange. Now, when she hits send/recieve, she keeps downloading the same messages, sometimes in duplicate. And after deleting them all and checking for new messages, they ALL come back. The box saying "Leave a copy of the message on the server" is NOT checked. Any ideas as to why this would happen? Or, another thing... After it gets ALMOST done downloading 700+ emails, it will start over... Im stumped. Is there a way to view her mailbox in the exchange enviroment and delete these emails before they are pushed out?
Thanks for your help in advance!!!

hmm ok is mail delivered still to a single external pop3 linux server mailbox and

then the exchange server is configured to pull from it ?

well if it was me first thing i'd do is change the mx records for the domain from

MX myxyz.com
mail.myisp.com mx Pref 10


MX myxyz.com

mail2.myxyz.com   MX PREF 20
mail.myisp.com      MX PREF 10

(create A record called mail2.myxyz.com with the domain isp for the external static ip of your location)

give http://mail2.xyz.com/exchange or /owa to the end user as a url to check and read there mail

i take it they are a laptop user and as you mentioned not on the domain. you can add that machine to the domain using a 2nd method that will cache the user domain profile to the local machine and they still login as their domain account even though they might not be connected to the domain all the time.

so at least with the OWA they can use the web page to screen the mails and delete the rubbish with out having to download every mail in its entirity.
