POP3 handler


MS Exchange server itself is unable to receive emails from external ISP POP3 mailboxes and route them to respective local exchange mailboxes. There are several products to do this task (POP2Exchange, for example), but they are more or less expensive. I offer the method to use freeware product Mercury/32 by David Harris, author of well-known Pegasus Mail system, as POP3 rerouting engine. I've tested the Mercury/32 version 2.16

During installation you need to choose standalone mode and then SMTP client module and POP3 client module.

Mercury1

Then fill appropriate fileds. Note in the last field you must enter Internet name or IP address of your Exchange server.

Mercury2

Leave Mail queue field blank.

After completing the installation start Mercury.exe Click Configuration, then MercuryD POP3 Client Add information about yout POP3 accounts (last 6 fields). In field Default user you must place internet address of exchange mailbox to route. LEAVE FIELD LOCAL USER BLANK.

Mercury3

Now you can start testing process.

Feel free to send me your comments and criticism.
