It depends.  The configuration you talk about is definitely not in the best
practices section of how to configure Outlook.  That's because Outlook gets
confused when you have multiple transports defined (in this case, both SMTP
and MAPI).  You get all kinds of funky errors.  

Best bet is to pick one or the other.

Good Afternoon,


Our environment is as follows:


Our internet mail server is hosted by a 3rd party (offsite).  We have
Exchange 2000 in house.  


When configuring outlook I usually setup a pop3 account to connect to
internet mail server and then I setup an Exchange mail account for
everything else.


When a user performs a send/receive operation what happens to their email?
Is the internet email downloaded to the exchange mailboxes?  If they are
downloaded to exchange does the message leave the exchange server and then
reside in the client's outlook folders?


I just want to get a clear picture of how the process works with Exchange
