V3G wonder if you could confirm or clarify the following....if i were to open my exchange up for pop access would be able to give my users the pop ip and thus get them to load it as an account under the existing vdafonsa acc??i mean afterall it should then be seen as a normal pop3 acc and not a corp account true??yet we tried it and it kix it out but other standard pops are exepting.....surly if i can use gprs/dialup to access the pop side of my exchange ,via the BBry shouldnt b any different?after all purchasing a BES for 5 users hardly seems worth it??

To make sure I understand your request:
1) You want to access Outlook via POP3 from your BB.
2) The BB server can extract mail from other POP3 accounts but not from your Exchange Server.
a) I can't see why it should not work. As long as you can access the mail via POP3, the BB server should do it. It can access up to 10 external POP3 accounts. Except if BB does a check and denies Outlook. Will ask.
b) Have you tried to access the Outlook POP3 account using another mail client? Maybe it's a security / authentication setting?

well it seems as tho the bb srvr chks it ,sees that its a pop access to an exchange srvr and kix it out,yet using the pop acc info via my lptp on either 3g or gprs works fine(obviously using your smtp to send but receiving is fine)...tried the pop ip on bb ..."sorry your account cant be ceated....."
is this cos the request runs through the blkbry SRP to authenticate it as a geniune pop acc?

Just a suggestion, but it might be slightly better to actually forward all the emails to the mobileemail.vodafonesa.co.za address. Why? Because that way you still have real push email where you receive the emails the moment it hits your server. Using POP3 it will only be received on the blackberry when the Blackberry Web Client polls your POP3 server.
