The POP3 Connector (assuming this is Small Business Server) hands the
mail to Exchange, who should then be responsible for dealing with a NDR.
Do you have the Virtual SMTP Server configured to send a copy of the NDR
to a user on the system? If not, I would configure that first to see
what happens, does that address get a copy of the NDR. If you don't,
try telnet'ing a message to a non-existant user and see if a NDR is
If its not the Microsoft Connector, but some third party option, I can
only guess what it is supposed to do, so I'd suggest contacting the
company that distributes the connector.
