POP3 will already be installed, but not enabled. You need to change the service from Disabled to Automatic and then change it.

Issues? There is nothing wrong with enabling POP3 itself, the problems come with the use. Too easy to remove data, user names and passwords in the clear.
I would ask why you want to enable it, because it means that client access is out of your control, the data is out of your control and could cause problems with backups.

Simon.

That's what OWA is for.  As for mobile phones, you can set up a forwarding from your Exchange to his/her Blackberry for example.  A copy of the email would still stay on Exchange.

Anything but POP3.

For remote access using corporate resources, if you are on Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 and Windows XP with at least Outlook 2003 then RPC over HTTPS is the preferred choice.
For PDAs, ActiveSync on Windows Mobile devices.
If you really are pushed, IMAP.

However once you open POP3 then the content is out of your control.
I am in the middle of writing a blog post on why enabling POP3 is a bad idea, it will not be ready for a few more days yet (customers keeping me busy). That will go in to in more depth, so I am a little reluctant to type it all in here only to repeat it for a blog posting in a few days.

Simon.

Forwarding to a mobile device depends on the device having an email address. Some of the Nokia's have the facility to use ActiveSync, you have to download it from Nokia's web site to use. Others can use Blackberry connect.

There are so many options other than POP3 access, which just has so many risks and provides a very poor remote access solution to Exchange.

Simon.

You did not say what model of Symbian Nokia but a quick search yields a quick general answer of YES.

see this company's site:  http://www.dataviz.com/products/roadsync/series60/index.html
