yeah, I know. but I was pulling at straws. I have managed to resolve the
problem but only by way of creating multiple aliases for a single mailbox
and doing it that way. Only problem then is that all mail comes to the same
account. I don't like it but it will have to do for now. All I wanted was to
log on as say BobSmith. But get mail from multiple email boxes like
problem if, in the future, I don't want all email coming to one box. Who
cares for now. At least I have everyone functioning on some level.
It's not that hard to grasp if I could explain it correctly. Let's just say
this... One user account. 3 email boxes. User receives email from all three
mailboxes on one computer with different OE identities. Or from say, three
different computers. With the exception of the user's OWN email account, all
other email boxes are refused (even if that user is specified as the primary
NT account) It's a weird problem and worse, the user him/herself couldn't
even receive their own account's email until I applied SP3.
One might say... Have the user be the Primary Nt Account right of all three
mailboxes right? nope. Use domain\username\alias right? nope. Force the POP3
connector to accept only clear text or clear text SSL right? nope.
So there you have it.. my last ditch attempt. Any takers?
Thanks to you both for all the help... I do appreciate it.
