    Issue: I can send email fine on Gmail using the outgoing server for my account but I can't fetch email using POP3. This is despite the fact that the exchange server is set up for POP and other mail programs can access it fine.

    Details
    Email Server: Exchange 2007
    Computer: Macbook Pro - Snow Leopard
    Browser:Firefox

    MAC MAIL SETTINGS:
    Email works perfect in Mac Mail with the following settings:
    Email Address: name@emailserver.com
    Internal Server: mail.emailserver.com
    username: rl\username - This is a required path for it to work using Mac Mail however, gmail can't even find the server with this path in.

    MAC MAIL ADVANCED SETTINGS:
    Internal Server Path:EWS/Exchange.asmx
    Internal Port: 443 Use SSL - Checked
    External Port: 80


    SENDING THROUGH GMAIL WORKS GREAT WITH THE FOLLOWING SETTINGS:
    USERNAME <username@company.com>
    Not an alias.
    Mail is sent through: mail.server.com
    Secured connection on port 587 using TLS

    GMAIL POP3 ERRORS:
    There was a problem connecting to mail.server.com
    Server returned error: "Connection timed out: There may be a problem with the settings you added. Please contact your other email provider to verify the correct server name and port."
    I get this error no matter what port or if SSL is turned on or off.
    Also using the path rl\ like I have to use Mac Mail causes GMAIL to not even be able to find the account.

    Any ideas?

    Hello,

    What is the fully qualified internet accessible domain name for the exchange server?

    Does it have port 110/tcp open for pop3 (or port 995 for pop3+ssl) both on the exchange server and on any firewall devices between the internet and your exchange server?
