Yes, this is really the problem, I haven't opened up either
POP or IMAP on our mail server.  So really I guess that is
what I'll have to do it I want this to work.  I'll think about
it, how to do it and keep our mail server secure.

Just wondering ...
If one has Exchange and is running BES, do you open up your
firewall to let IMAP or POP in from the internet?

And thanks everyone for all the help.
