Outlook express connecting to exchange 2003

Microsoft Exchange server enterprise 200...
November 10, 2010 at 12:04:26
Specs: Windows 2003 server
I have SBS with exchange 2003 and is running fine,
Most of my users have Office 2003 and Outlook works fine.
For some I need to configure Outlook express 6.
It is not working, I keep getting errors No mail server found. I have only SMTP configured on server and no POP.

Is there a way I can use Outlook Express on exchange?
Thanks

How are your outlook clients getting their email if the server is only set to send but not receive?

What do you have the office outlook clients pointed to for receiving email?

while configuring Outlook 2003 (office 2003) it asked for exchange server and thats it. It didn't ask anything else like in particular pop/smtp etc.
But for Outlook express 6 setup I do not find the option to tell it to use exchage and not to ask POP/SMTP etc.

Thats because POP3 is turned off by default. You need to turn the service on and then configure authentication for the said users on the SMTP connector.
The problem with this is all email will be downloaded off the server and wont remain within Exchange. Assuming you have enough cals you should be using Outlook instead. The Binaries can be found for Outlook in the clientapps folder on the root of C:

Thanks for the reply.
If I understood right, you are saying to use Outlook Express I have to configure POP3. By doing so, all messages may download to clients.

If I keep using Office 2003 I need to have enough cals (of course) and I am okay with that.

Now I don't understand what's the story with Bianries?
