Can Exchange 2003 be an POP3/SMTP server?

I am trying something out and am not sure if it is even possible. I have Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition SP1 on Windows Server Enterprise Edition SP1 (dedicated). I am Tired of our company's ISP "loosing" many of our e-mails. But not all of our employees (particularly our Network Engineer) are using MS Outlook 2003 as their e-mail client. Anyways, I want to turn our exchange server into a POP3/SMTP server for our employees to use with their choice on an e-mail client. Please let me know if you have any more questions that could help with this experiment. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Any POP3 compliant email client can be used to access mail on an Exchange server. Better yet, with Exchange 2003 you can use a web browser and work with all features of Exchange mail (just as if you were using the Outlook client) and the interface is terrific (same as Outlook 2003).

I am interested in your statement of the ISP loosing your email. Is your ISP currently your mail provider or just your connection to the internet?

    If your ISP is loosing your emails, that is the problem you most address first. Making exchange a POP3 would not make any difference on your emails been lost. Make sure that your MX record is properly set as well as your PTR record. You can check them with WWW.DNSSFTUFF.COM. Good luck
