I'm having problems by collecting mail via pop3


the mail in my network works fine.
SMTP to mail outside works fine.
There is only a problem by getting my mail.
the pop3 settings works fine in outlook, but not in the sme server.
what can be wrong?

I can't tell what you are intending to say:

Are you using "fetchmail", and having problems configuring that to fetch mail onto your SME server from another off-site POP server?

Or are you having problems downloading POP3 email from your SME server from off-site POP users?

Or neither of the above?

I want to collect all the mail from the isp, to distibute to all the users in the network.

In the server manager is an option to set up my pop3 isp mail-server, by setup the mailserver, username and password.

Then i can choose to collect mail every 15 minutes or 30 minutes whatever.

Only the mail stays at the isp-pop3  server, and  the SME server doesnt collect the mail.

What can be the problem?

Look in server manager - view log files, and look at the various mail related log files and the messages log file.
You should get some clues as to what is/is not happening.
