Modify the default routing for a global mailbox
To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the Domain Admins security group.
If you have a single POP3 mailbox account at your Internet service provider (ISP) designated to receive all e-mail sent to your company or domain, you can use a global mailbox for the Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes to retrieve the e-mail. When POP3 e-mail is downloaded, Exchange reads the recipients on the To and Cc lines of the message, and then forwards the message to the correct Exchange users. However, the Exchange user name must match the user name of the ISP's POP3 mailbox account. For example, if e-mail is sent to the POP3 mailbox using Chris@<POP3domain>.com (where POP3domain is the domain name for Chris's ISP), then the Exchange user name must be "Chris." If e-mail distributed through a global mailbox does not directly map to an Exchange user, such as e-mail sent to a mailing list, you must modify the default routing of the global mailbox.
