    I'll try as best I can. Our site also uses MailEssentials, but when
we used the Pop aspect of it we pulled in around 150 boxes. Now we host
our own mail, se we have no need for that anymore.
    you need only set up essentials on one server if done right. It will
go out to each pop box, and pull it into exchange for you. Essentials
will deliver the mail via SMTP to the Exchange server, where it will be
processed and if needed, sent to a different servers stores. Question,
are thes servers in one domain, or seperate domains?
    Without altering your MX records, you will set up essentials for
each user, their Server,account name & password and an alternate adx.
That alternate adx is the Exchange adx for that user. As long as mail
can flow within your exchange domain to each server then mail will go
    The spam aspect will work, because the mail will be processed before
it's routed.
I don't know about catchalls, we don't use them.

        I've been investigating MailEssentials and the like a little bit
when I've had time and I have a few questions.


        We have around 25 users in two different states; a single
Exchange 2000 server per office; hardware VPN between the offices. We
have an external web host that hosts our website and our POP3 email. All
Outlook clients are configured to log into this POP3 server on their own
to retrieve external mail. The Exchange Servers are used for mailbox
hosting and internal mail routing.


        Without altering our domain MX records, I want to configure our
main Exchange server to log into our POP3 server and retrieve all the
POP3 email and properly distribute to all users in both offices.


        *       Am I going to be able to get rid of all user accounts on
our POP3 server and just let the catch-all box receive all emails, and
have my Exchange Server log into this catch-all account and retrieve ALL

        *       Is my main Exchange Server going to be able to route
POP3 emails to the other Exchange Server properly?

        *       Will the spam filtering that's part of MailEssentials
(or a similar product) work if it's only installed on the one Exchange


        Does anyone have any product recommendations as alternatives to
MailEssentials. I've heard lots of good about it, but just want to be
