i hope you can help. I'm losing my mind. I'm not a specialist in SBS but i have a huge problem.
I wanted to replace the mircosoft pop3-connector with popcon because i was told that several mails could not be received.
So i installed popcon and stoped the services: 'Microsoft Connector for POP3' and 'Microsoft Exchange POP3'.
And nevertheless i was still receiving mails (popcon was not running at this moment).
Then i changed the email-server in the 'pop3 connector manager' and restarted all services of exchange (pop3 services still stopped) to make sure that there is no connection to the e-mail server with pop3.
But i still got mails.
Then i stopped 'Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)' and now i can't receive mails anymore.
But i also can't receive mails when i'm starting popcon. It always tells me that there are no mails on the server.
I know that behaviour when i tried to stop forwarding port 25 to this server. Then i couldn't receive mails either. Even though this is the smtp port.
Long story short: Can anyone tell me why it seems like my server is downloading mails via smtp?
I really do not unterstand this at all & I also can't find anything on google etc.
I'm thankful for any response!
