Exchange Connector – POP3 Connector for Exchange
Exchange 2013, 2010, 2007 & 2003 and
Small Business Server 2011, 2008 & 2003
Exchange Connector seamlessly integrates POP3 mailboxes with Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, 2010, 2007 & 2003, including Small Business Server (SBS) 2011, 2008 & 2003, by downloading mail from the POP3 server and delivering the messages to the appropriate Exchange Server accounts. Exchange Connector is simple to configure, yet a flexible, high-performance, reliable and affordable POP3 connector.
Exchange Connector enables you to:
- Enjoy the benefits of Exchange without needing to manage a public SMTP server – useful if you don't have a carrier-grade Internet connection, or otherwise can't guarantee near 100% uptime
- Bridge other mail servers with Exchange Server – useful if you need to continue receiving mail from legacy accounts, or you want to continue using your existing mail setup while migrating to Exchange
- Migrate existing POP3 mailboxes to Exchange with ease – useful to ensure that there are no messages left on the POP3 server when you switch to Exchange
Support for Exchange 2013, 2010, 2007 & 2003, and Windows Server 2012, 2008 & 2003
Exchange Connector has been tested and is fully compatible with Exchange 2013, Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2007 running on an x64 platform. The latest version is also compatible with Exchange 2003. Separate 32-bit and 64-bit (x64) editions are available (however, licenses are not restricted to a specific platform).
Per Server Licensing
Each license is valid for an unlimited number of users. Only one license for each server is necessary. The maximum number of users is limited only by the capacity of the server.
Automatic Recipient Detection
When messages are downloaded from a POP3 server, Exchange Connector needs to know which Exchange mailbox to deliver to. This can be achieved either by analyzing the To, Cc and Bcc fields of the message, or by manually selecting one or more delivery mailboxes for each POP3 account.
Full Support for Exchange Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam Features
Messages are delivered using SMTP, ensuring full compatibility with anti-spam and anti-virus filters, and processing server-side Exchange rules.
Also known as POP over SSL, Secure POP allows encrypted communications with POP3 servers if they support this feature. Secure POP greatly enhances security in a POP3 connector environment. Secure POP is necessary to communicate with Gmail.
Installation on a Separate Server
Exchange Connector can be installed either on the Exchange Server machine, or another machine on the network. Each installation of Exchange Connector connects to a single Exchange Server.
Runs as a Windows Service
You don't need to leave a user always logged on to the server - Exchange Connector runs in the background as a Windows NT service. When the computer is restarted, the service automatically restarts, ensuring continued delivery of mail.
Flexible Download Interval
Messages are periodically downloaded from the POP3 servers at an interval configurable from as low as 1 minute to as high as 1 hour.
Off-Peak Bandwidth Saver
Can be configured to download only during specified hours, e.g. between 9AM-5PM Monday-Friday, to save bandwidth during times when users do not need to access their mailboxes.
Multiple Users Per Mailbox
Each POP3 mailbox can deliver to multiple Exchange users or distribution groups.
Leave Messages on Server
Messages can be left on the POP3 server indefinitely, or for a period of up to 90 days.
Messages are delivered to a folder in the file system as EML files, to maintain an archive of all messages sent and received. Messages are sorted by POP3 server and POP3 mailbox.
Download Mail Now Button
"Download Mail Now" button allows the user to force immediate downloading of all mail, even outside normal download hours when the Off-Peak Bandwidth Saver feature is used.
Server Message View
The Server Message View feature allows you to see which messages are currently stored on the POP3 server, avoiding the hassle of temporarily configuring an Outlook client for POP3 access.
APOP Command Support
Automatic support for the APOP command ensures that passwords are not sent in plain text when not using SSL, with POP3 servers that support the feature. For maximum compatibility, Exchange Connector will fall back to plain text authentication if APOP authentication fails. You can also choose to manually disable APOP.
Outbound Connection Limiting
Limit the number of outbound connections provides for maximum support with firewalls and Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 and above.
SQL Server Logging
All POP3, SMTP and file I/O operations can be logged to a SQL Server database (including free SQL Server Express 2005/2008/2012). For information on setting up SQL Server Logging, see the Knowledge Base Article.
Comprehensive Error Reporting
Delivery failure reports and program errors can be emailed to an administrator, logged to the event log and the SQL Server database, and optionally emailed to Quantum Software Solutions for bug reporting.

The number of POP3 users a server is capable of supporting depends on the hardware, what other applications are also using the server, and the performance of the Internet connection.
Exchange Connector licenses include one year of free technical support via email. After the first year, technical support is $49 per server, per year.
