Dear All, 

I am still new to Exchange Database. 

I have one thing which make confuse, Please some one try to correct me . 

What do you mean by Virtual server ? and what do you mean by POP3 virtual 
server ? 

For Example , if I have here in Saudi Arabia My Exchange server and it has the 
following Real IP ( ) and its online by ISP ( Leased Line).

And I have registered my new domain name under Network solution company with 
the following name ( ) and it already registered , and they give me 
the following information :- 

Domain Name: 
Secure Server (SSL) Path:
Server Name: straw 
Web Directory Path: /www/MS400/

Current IP:

And under my domain name I have asked them to have E-mail there also in network 
solution . so I configured the outlook configuration to use the POP3 server 
which is my domain name . and I can send & Receive any E-mail with using 
Outlook Normal without my Exchange server at all . ( I mean connect online ).

BUT , Now if I want to configure  my Exchange server which I have here in my 
office  to be connected to My server which is located in USA and to download 
the E-mails only from My server in USA, when I configure THE Virtual server for 
My Exchange server , do you mean that , the virtual server for MY exchange 
server will be MY server in USA. 

I mean if its like I am telling My exchange server that , you have another 
virtual server located in USA with this IP , Please go there and 
download all of the E-mails from there . and its POP3 virtual server . NOT SMTP 
virtual server . 

Is it Wright? 

Please littlie help regarding this .

Hi Mike!
Sure you can define multiple POP3 virtual servers for the same IP address.
It is important the unique port and IP combination. For the first virtual
server you will have, for example, the IP address and the only
port 110. And the second virtual server will have the same IP,
but a different port 995. This will function in each primitive
mail/messaging server. I think Exchange 2003 is not a primitive messaging
system, or is it?

Best Regards
