Incoming POP3 Mail Disappears

Microsoft Windows

My exchange server 2000 recieved all POP3 Mails form my
ISP but did not route or distribute to any defined mail
box. You can say my incoming POP3 mails are disappears.
For this I has been install Exchange 2k Service Pack 3 but
still having a same problem.

Then I install Native POP3 Connector for Exchange 2K, and
it work fine and shows all my incoming mails.

What is the bug behind thihs and how can I overcome it.
There is no "Native POP3 Connector for Exchange 2k". The Pop3 connector is
only included with the Small Business Server components.
Regular Exchange Server doesn't have a Pop3 connector.

There was an issue with the connector in SBS 2000 were mail would get lost
and that was fixed in Service Pack 1.

That problem is documented at:
