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

An SMTP connector, in this case, won’t help you since all those connectors do is route SMTP mail. If your ISP is using Exchange, ask them to use EXMERGE to pull out all of the emails for your people, and then use EXMERGE to put those PST files into the correct user’s Exchange mailbox. If your ISP is using some other mail server, then I’m going to assume you are connecting them via POP3 or IMAP. You can easily take the PST used for these types of accounts and use EXMERGE to put the data in those PST files into their Exchange mailbox for them. However, you will want to make sure your ISP is forwarding new mail to your new Exchange server, and have your users synch up their email before you EXMERGE their PST into Exchange to ensure all of their email is download and present in the PST.

    Hi Pablo, do you need this for the initial starting only, then Shawn's solution is the right way. However, if you want your ISP to receive your mails and you just want to fetch them at given times to moved them to your Exchange server, then you would need some sort of POP-Connector. The Exchange Server delivered with the Small Business Server 2003 has this built in. If you run the Standard edition, you would need to install a third party tool, like GFI Mail Essentials, which is a SPAM filter also providing you with a POP-Connector getting mails from your ISP moving it to the appropriate mailboxes on your EXS. Hope that helps. Manfred
