Exchange 2000 Question

I have a client with two Exchange 2000 servers, thanks to politics they will not be modernizing it anytime soon.

I discovered yesterday that their Windows Mobile Devices point directly to each Exchange server. Is this normal for pop3? Shouldn't there just be one front end they pop from? Or do they have to pop off their server which their mailbox resides?

    IIRC, you have to have POP3 running on the mailbox servers regardless, but you can point the client to the front-end server if POP3 is also configured there. The environments I've been in that used POP3 weren't complicated and didn't require it to work from the Internet so we always just set it up on the mailbox server.
