4. Join this New server to Domain.

Please if you know a solution or if you know recommendation , Please Help me . 
i am working on it Now. otherwise no need to see or her some comments which is 
not good at all . Please Help me in this . 

  i have big Problem in My exchange server .

 i have one server which installed on it SBS2000 with Exchange 2000 and ISA2000.

and as you are a ware this SBS2000 comes with Bulit in Toll for download Emails 
from POP 3 Server , and this Toll called POP3 Connector. 

  but i found that i have a Problem with it .

  i found this Error message in Front of me :-

 Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes has encountered an internal error that 
it could not recover from. 

After you close the error message dialog box, the following files are created: 


C:\Program Files\Microsoft BackOffice\Connectivity\POP3 Connector\Vmimb.txt


C:\Program Files\Microsoft BackOffice\Connectivity\POP3 Connector\Vmimb.evt



i searched on the internet and i found a sloution for it . 

but this solution tell me  the following :-
This problem may occur if the following conditions exist: 


The Microsoft Connector for POP3 is in the process of downloading a lot of 


The next-scheduled connector download time occurs.


The time that it takes to download the larger volume of messages is exceeding 
the scheduled download interval. This interval is set in the Microsoft POP3 
Connector properties. This situation causes a conflict with the current 
download of inbound messages and the scheduled start of the connector. 

To work around this problem, increase the Microsoft Connector for POP3 
Mailboxes Scheduler time. This provides a longer interval of time before the 
next start of the connector. The next-scheduled start of the Connector occurs 
later, and does not overlap the current download. 



Start the Small Business Server (SBS) Administrator Console, and expand the 
Exchange node for your organization. 

Expand the Administrative Group, the first administrative group, and then 
expand the Connectors node. Right-click the Microsoft Connector for POP3 
Mailboxes, then click Properties.


On the Connect and Download tab, click the Schedule button.


Change the scheduled settings to increase the existing interval between each 
scheduled download. Zero hours and fifteen minutes are the minimum intervals 
for the connector.

NOTE: The exact location of the Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes may 
vary, depending on the options you selected in the Exchange node properties, 
Administrative Views.
