    Okay. Here's my next questions:

    Are you planning on using the POP3 function in Server 2003?

    If so....................
    Do you have a domain set up for these accounts?
    Do you have a static IP?
    Is your MX record directed toward your static IP?

    MX stands for Mail Exchanger. It's a type of DNS record. You have to forward that your static IP, or your mail won't work.
